The Cleveland Family Center for Missing Children and Adults (AKA Cleveland Family) was founded because of what one Cleveland, Ohio family suffered for nine years while searching for their missing fourteen-year-old daughter.
The Cleveland Family Center was co-founded by Gina DeJesus, and her cousin, Sylvia Colon. Cleveland Family Center is the only organization offering direct support for families and friends searching for their missing loved ones. We are 100% focused on providing all services necessary in aiding worried families from initial missing person’s report to and through recovery. Additionally, we work with police departments offering the special training required when working with families of the missing as well as the sensitivity required when the missing are recovered.
We provide these services by drawing on the expertise of members of our board and community partners. Some of our Board members are law enforcement officials, experienced in internet crimes, abductions and human trafficking. Other board members are experienced with trauma, nursing and psycho-therapy. We have a sizable database to guide families, and are constantly updating to remain on the cutting edge of what is new and available resources for families.
ALL SERVICES ARE FREE TO FAMILIES! We believe that NO family should have to beg for resources while searching for a missing loved one.
