For an organization which helps so many people and communities around the country the VCA do not get enough thanks. With a small team the staff work extremely hard to assist in any way they can. Watching first hand the way everyone at the VCA works, with a small budget and willingness to help you can tell they really do the work for the community and with little thought to their own personal gain.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

witnessing firsthand how a non-profit works. It opened up my eyes to all the behind the scenes issues they have to deal with. It is such a shame how little help they receive when they are working for the community.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

so friendly despite being overworked. Volunteering at the VCA was a pleasure which made it difficult for me to leave. Would recommend others to volunteer there as they are understaffed and are a great team to work with.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

solve so many problems. It would mean so much to them to receive funds.

I worked for this organization for over a year. Even though I moved on my heart is still in this organization to this day. This is a non-profit where you can really feel the care, intention, and mission being lived out everyday by the staff, board members, and supporters. When a child goes missing, it is THEIR child too. When an organization wants to learn more about abduction safety, it becomes their mission to teach them. They are a staff of very few people, but the heart of millions. I would do whatever they asked of me because I believe in VCA.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the children who have been located because of VCA, in the faces of families who never gave up hope, in a person's face when they have learned the power of prevention, in the face of the donors who see their money working for a tangible goal.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

start a more grassroots approach to funding, get its name out in the community, and work towards the community supporting a worthy cause like this.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the staff...they are amazing.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

dynamic, wonderful, smart, intuitive, magnanimus, loving, inspirational...saints.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

be even better and be able to accomplish all the things they strive to do.

Ways to make it better...

I would have stayed. I never regret moving on, but a pice of me sstays there.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

money and recognition

One thing I'd also say is that...

if people would stop to notice them, they would see a rare thing...a non-profit that truly cares and has not lost sight of their mission.

The Vanished Children's Alliance provides so many services! The Outreach Department is geared towards abduction prevention, providing saftety presentations and information to children and adults. They also provide fingerprinting in-house and at various events. The Casework Department assists families and law enforcement nationwide in missing child cases, providing support, poster dissemination and active case management. The Vending Department provides missing child stickers to vendors to place on their machines, helping to get the word out on the missing child and the issue of missing and abducted children. VCA is a wonderful asset that everyone should know about. Spread the word...donate or volunteer today!

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

the nicest group of people you will ever meet! They are all passionate about this cause and it shows! Without them, the organization wouldn't survive.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

help families forever! With that much money, VCA could provide its services without ever worrying that money would run out. They could blanket the nation with safety tips and hire a larger staff.
