Boca nonprofit Child Rescue Coalition will now combat online child sexual exploitation with the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children.
The center was founded in 1984 and is a national resource center on issues related to missing and sexually exploited children. Child Rescue Coalition helps global law enforcement officials rescue children from predators and potential sexual abuse by using leading edge technology. Now, the groups are working together with law enforcement to identify and remove children from abusive situations and sexual abuse.
“It is an honor to partner with an incredible institution committed to the protection of our most vulnerable populations, our children,” said Carly Asher Yoost, CEO and founder of the Child Rescue Coalition. “We are grateful for this new partnership as we work to help protect and rescue countless children from online sexual exploitation.”
Child Rescue Coalition will provide its technology to NCMEC at no cost. In the last four years, the data provided by Child Rescue Coalition to law enforcement partners worldwide has led to the arrest of more than 8,000 child predators and the rescue of nearly 2,000 children from sexual abuse.
“Working together, the Child Rescue Coalition and NCMEC will further our mission to help find missing children, reduce child sexual exploitation and prevent future victimization,” said John F. Clark, NCMEC’s president and CEO. “The technology and data provided to NCMEC by the Child Rescue Coalition will help identify more child victims, thus moving forward law enforcement and prosecutors’ efforts to rescue children from sexually exploitive situations.”
