Monica Caison and CUE have been a blessing to our family. She helped us find our brother/son who was missing in another state. She suggested that we miss a Missing Person's report in Wilmington, NC since we found out he was there for a brief time. Because of Monica's knowledge and experience, we got connected to the right people and finally found our loved one. Monica and CUE helped save our loved one's life. We will forever be grateful to her! God Bless you for the amazing work you do to help families in a time that is like a living nightmare.
CUE is a wonderful group of self less people who never give up in their search for the missing. Not only that but they also are there well after the initial event and continue to offer support to the families of the missing. Even if it takes YEARS. They do all of this at their own expense. Traveling wherever they are needed. A great group of people!
When I made the decision to become involved with trying to help in the effort to help with the missing and their families,I did not take it lightly on which organization I would give my time too. Researched many. CUE and those involved is first and foremost focused on the missing and their families, has dedicated volunteers who are NOT doing it for self promotion. They are genuinely giving of themselves for the right reasons. You will NEVER see CUE bragging on Facebook about what we do. They just DO IT! CUE has very professional volunteers! CUE HAS COMPASSION! Nothing but respect for all those have met and worked with.
As a State Outreach Coordinator for the CUE Center for Missing Persons for several years, I could list the obvious reasons who this organization is so rewarding - the dedication, the mission, the caring and compassion, the individual talents that so many bring to the table to assist families.
However, it is the nuances that are not seen by everyone which create a long lasting impression on others and me. The “giving it your all” attitude of the search and rescue professionals in all manner of weather conditions is but one example. The hand on a shoulder, the phone call answered in the middle of the night; the poster made at a moments notice; the ability to listen to a grieving family, to provide purpose for the family while in crisis, the lack of judgment, no matter what the victim's circumstance, the unique and always impactful Annual Conference; lessons learned by example; the sense of family; always striving to educate the public and to optimize the chances of locating a missing person; the longevity of the relationships that never end after a rescue or recovery- Rather, they serve as a beginning.
Such is the flow of the Cue Center with Founder Monica Caison providing the training and the inspiration to all who give so selflessly as volunteers.
I highly recommend this non-profit for the highest rating!

This is the most dedicated selfless organization! The saying "every missing person is somebody's child" always holds true with this organization. The founder and searchers donate many hours of their time, travel regularly, obtain training, work cases, fundraise, train K9's.and horses, use their personal vehicles all in the hope to help families of missing ontain resolution. It is an honor to be able to volunteer with this organization.
The level of professionalism, respect, integrity, dedication, compassion, and deep commitment exhibited by this organization as a whole, and it's volunteers, both in the search field and in the advocacy and educational arena are above and beyond that of any other in the country today.. For this to continue to hold true, after more than twenty years, is a true and real testament to the mission, values, and very heart and soul of Monica Caison, the founder of the CUE Center, and all of the countless devoted volunteers that she instills and motivates every moment of every day. Thanks to the tireless efforts of CUE, it's search teams, and advocates, and with the respect and collaboration of Law Enforcement and professionals in related fields from across the nation, there has and will continue to be, resolution for thousands of loved ones of missing persons...
Having seen the work that CUE has done for a few families personally, I already knew what an amazing organization this was... however it wasn't until I participated in a search effort myself with CUE that I realized just how much everyone with CUE is not only dedicated to what they do, but how above and beyond they go for the families they are helping, and the people who are working with them, volunteering, or helping in some capacity. The searchers were treated with just as much care and respect as the families were... This organization goes above and beyond in all areas, from their dedication, to the way they manage every incident, to their level of care and caring, from the tiniest thing to the biggest... it all matters... Absolutely exceptional on all counts...
The CUE Center for Missing Persons is an amazing organization with a lot of heart. Every missing person is someone's child, please support this selfless organization so that CUE can continue to keep the hope alive in the hearts of the families that still seek answers!!!
Close to 7 years ago I heard about CUE when Brittanee Drexel went missing, she was from my hometown and it struck me like a brick- that someone so innocent just vanished without a trace- I began to help on searches not just for Brittanee but for several others that were missing. The passion & the heart that CUE showed to the families & volunteers made me want to be a part and do my part with CUE. Helping families keep hope & get answers and closure. I can only speak for myself based on my experiences as a volunteer but I know if I ever went missing that CUE would find me and bring me back home... Amazing organization funded by the caring hearts of others...
I have a missing son of 14 years I joined the CUE 8 years ago and I was a mess I couldn't go out of my house didn't travel I shut everyone out. Because of the help out the CUE family I now help others I am a State Coordinator I also have gone on the Road tours yes I do call the CUE family that is the way you are treated God Bless them all
My son Damien Mark Sharp went missing almost 11years ago he was 22 years young at the time. The worst fear is hearing your son or daughter is missing and possabily dead. Who do you go to? who do you talk to? were do you start? The first few days are like a fog hope you have someone by you because you don't remember what was said and what you did. The tears come everyday and just doesn't stop. The CUE knows what to do and who can help. Monica Caison is the best woman I have every met she is strong and soft at the same time she can put your mind at ease. She can put a search party together in hours when she starts her call outs people answer from ground pounders to K-9s ect. I met Monica and the CUE staff on a road trip, and the words I have waited to here was I can help you. Monica and the CUE has. I am now a NY/PA state coordinator and will be there for others who do not know were to go or who to talk to. The CUE has changed my life forever.
Never have I come across an organization with more integrity, dedication, respect, compassion, professionalism, and care then CUE Center for Missing Persons. CUE's reputation has a solid foundation grown from the families it has served for over two decades, and the agencies it has assisted in that time. The search resources CUE provides are top of the line in their experience, professional standards, and heart... The educational platforms and awareness campaigns, both held at national levels, are exceptional... and their level of family support is beyond compare. To find all of these qualities, and so many more, in any organization that is nonprofit, and completely volunteer, and never cost a penny to any family or law enforcement agency, is truly and simply astounding....
This organization has changed my life. I was unaware of the CUE Center when my family suffered a missing person, I came to know them when a friend of a co-worker went missing and they came into the picture. Watching them in action, watching how they stepped in and supported my co-worker and helped her through the process showed me that this was an organization I wanted to be involved with. I am working on my 5th year as a volunteer for CUE Center and I am still amazed everyday by the difference Monica and the volunteers make in peoples lives. It's unfortunate that there is a need for an Organization to assist in the search for the missing and to support these families during the worst of times, but what a blessing that they are there.
It's difficult to find the passion and drive necessary in one person to dream of, and make successful an organization of such importance and critical work. Yet it took one person to discipline themselves enough to continue with their dream...and turn it into a Community United Effort. Monica Caison is a true community leader, a dedicated hard worker, a talented and intuitive visionary and more than valuable resource to the families of missing persons. She is a "gatherer" of people and resources that when brought together, continues to branch out as everyone's strengths meet and strengthen each mission further. Monica is what I refer to as a "Root Ma". Without her specific gift, her fuel, her drive towards her thirsty purpose - CUE would not exist. To that end...Thank God for all the people stepping up, and meeting their purpose through Monica, those meant to follow this leader...for they have been true heroes in her eyes as well. She has inspired many hearts, inspired many positive actions, changed people and families forever with her support, and has helped where real help was the last thing expected in a sad, dark place for many. This world is a much better place because of her leadership and her footprint will never be diminished. Nor will any of the foot prints walking beside her.
