Professional Organizations and Networks

Missing and exploited children’s issues are complex and multifaceted. For this reason, NCMEC works with a wide variety of professional groups and organizations to help further the mission of preventing and reducing child victimization worldwide.

Family Advocacy Outreach Network: The FAON connects victims and families with mental health service providers and other resources within their communities. For professionals seeking more information about the requirements of becoming a network member, learn more here.

The International Child Abduction Attorney Network: As part of a nationwide effort to assist parents, the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children ® asks attorneys to volunteer to represent searching-parents of children abducted by a family member. A commitment to handle at least one pro bono case entitles you to membership in the ICAAN. 

Global Missing Children’s Network: More than twenty-five countries participate in the Global Missing Children’s Network; a collaborative venture to help recover missing and abducted children around the world.

Financial Coalition Against Child Pornography: A coalition of 34 financial institutions and internet service companies dedicated to putting an end to commercial child pornography. 

The National Coalition to Prevent Child Sexual Abuse and Exploitation is a unified effort to promote the healthy development of children and youth and end their sexual abuse and exploitation. The Coalition was formed as a means for coordination and collaboration among a wide variety of organizations and individuals committed to prevention. 

Program Participants

NCMEC is proud to recognize businesses and other groups who demonstrate a commitment to protecting children by implementing recommended safety measures and response policies.
