About DOCK ELLIS FOUNDATION INC

Mission Statement

The Dock Ellis Foundation mission is to empower minority communities by bringing home missing persons. We believe that everyone deserves to be safe and have a voice, regardless of their background or economic standing. We are dedicated to providing support and resources to families and individuals who are affected by crime and violence.

Description

In 2020, 543,018 people were reported missing in the United States. Black people make up only about 13% of the American population, yet almost one third of the people reported missing were Black. This reveals how Black communities are affected by this issue disproportionately.

There are simply not enough resources, compassion or attention on our missing black and brown women, men and children. Most importantly there isn't enough support for the children devastated by a parent that has unwillingly vanishing. Many families are dealing with lack of cultural awareness or competency by the entities they rely on to help, lack of sensitivity to victims and their families, poor or nonexistent communication with families, preconceived judgment for families with criminal records and survivors, chronic lack of cases being brought to justice.
