Mission Statement

The Polly Klaas(R) Foundation helps find missing children, prevents children from going missing, and promotes laws like Amber Alert that help keep children safe.

Description

Our services:

Casework
Parents of missing children can reach caseworkers 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. We offer advice for families across the United States who are involved in the crisis of a missing child. Working with law enforcement, we provide such services as counseling, printed posters, press releases, fax blasts, and referrals to local services.

Prevention
We offer a Child Safety Kit and Internet Safety Kit to help parents teach children to avoid risky situations that might lead to abduction. Our materials encourage parents to talk matter-of-factly with kids about personal safety. Instead of motivating with fear, we seek to support loving family relationships and open communication that fosters the self-confidence that helps keep kids safe.

Legislation
Our national campaign for Amber Alerts was instrumental in establishing the program in all 50 states and nationally.

Volunteerism
We offer national volunteer programs for supporters to join in our work.
