When Child Watch was founded in 1993 its focus was dedicated to preventing and recovering missing, abused, and exploited children.
That mission continues under Crisis Relief Network as a program. In 1994 investigations were added as a service to help search for missing children.
Through Child Watch, our organization has assisted in the rescue of over 250 missing children, distributed millions of free photo ID cards and safety rules. In 2003 alone, Child distributed over one million home ID kits through our sponsor Shell Oil. The home ID kits were also distributed through some of our other sponsors like Toys R Us. Toys R Us distributed 350,000 home ID kits in one weekend as part of a nationwide promotion. Our home ID kit has been sent out to every state across the United States and over 40 countries nationwide. We now offer the FBI smartphone app on our website and at events. This has always been a free service for families. All of our services are provided free of charge to families, children, veterans and first responders.
Since 2009 our mission has evolved. We had been searching for ways to help more families and we discovered a method to help trauma survivors. This method to assist anyone affected by trauma changed our organization forever. We have worked with children, parents, veterans, first responders, and childhood abuse survivors with remarkable life-changing results. A perfect example of how this program works is through actual testimonials. A lady who had experienced severe childhood sexual abuse and was living with deep depression wrote to us a few days after her two-hour session and said "You saved my life, thank you, thank you. thank you". Priceless!
