Child Quest International (CQI) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the prevention and recovery of missing, abused and exploited children. At CQI, we pride ourselves on “Keeping Hope Alive” for all missing children and their left-behind families.
Since our inception in June of 1990, CQI has assisted in the recovery of over 3,000 individuals. CQI is recognized by local and national law enforcement agencies as an important element in the search and recovery effort, and the support we provide to searching families is KEEPING HOPE ALIVE.
In addition to recovery operations, safety education is an essential piece in CQI's fundamental approach to to stopping child victimization. Providing awareness training and safety education to children, teens, preteens, and parents is the foundation for our goal to protect children and prevent child exploitation. Through our education programs, children learn safety skills to protect themselves in potentially dangerous situations, and parents learn how to be more vigilant while establishing healthy boundaries.
Funded through donations and fundraising, CQI never charges a fee to searching families or law enforcement.
