Interstate Association for Stolen Children (IASC)is a 501(3)c nonprofit organization that intervenes directly in non-family child abduction cases and is involved in the relentless pursuit of predators. All actions are coordinated with law enforcement.
We have been serving communities for over a decade. Our community outreach programs and youth initiatives are designed to help those in need. Our goal as an organization is to help children.
Our mission is to support the members of all communities in their time of need, and work towards a greater good. We are tireless in our efforts to help families of missing children as well as families with children. We help those seeking help in a time of need. Our non-profit organization serves people of all races, creeds, and religions. We do not discriminate. We merely support our fellow citizens, and serve as a guiding light.
Our volunteer base is growing at a steady pace. With this growth, we have been able to accomplish more, and have a larger impact upon our communities. We welcome new volunteers with open arms. Please inquire today about how you can become a cherished part of the Interstate family.
Interstate Association for Stolen Children (IASC) not only aids in the investigation and recovery of non-parental abductions but also those children who have been taken into the dark world of Domestic Human Trafficking, more commonly known as Prostitution. Our team keeps up-to-date training, resources and knowledge of what goes on in this underworld of modern day slavery. We are extremely dedicated in bringing these children home and insuring their safe rehabilitation. We have successfully Investigated, researched and searched the streets in order to make this happen. Interstate Association for Stolen Children not only has the training and experience in this area but also has a team of parent volunteers that have lost a child to this underworld of Human Trafficking. These parents were once out clients, who before seeking the assistance of IASC spent many sleepless nights and placed themselves in dangerous situations searching for their child with no success. We here at IASC, educate and guide our clients in the process of finding their child in order to insure their safety. We believe that coming together as a team; Local Authority, Federal Agents, Missing Children’s Organizations, along with parent cooperation insures the success of bringing our children home.
IASC offers support and assistance 24/7 to those parents of missing children. We take pride in the relationships that we have built with Local, Federal, and Non-Profit agencies to bridge the Gap and bring our children home, your child..
It takes a village to raise a child and it takes and Army to bring them home safely. Proudly we are apart of that Army.
