Review for Community United Effort (CUE), Wilmington, NC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

As a volunteer State Outreach Coordinator for the CUE Center for Missing Persons for many years, I am continually impressed with Founder, Monica Caison’s ability to maintain, sustain and never lose sight of the path to thriving once again, in the midst of an unprecedented pandemic!

It takes incredible skill to switch gears, re-prioritize resources, time and effort in order to provide needed services which embody the mission and goals of this organization.
Assisting families of the missing and unsolved homicides is always the number one priority. A 26 year track record with many important, professional services continuing to be offered free of charge is unmatched in the arena of missing persons.

It truly takes a “nationwide village” of dedicated staff to persevere, motivate and foster change in any year. However, this is especially vital in 2020, as families need a lifeline more than ever before!
The beauty of this organization to me, is that specific circumstances around a person going missing is never judged. Help is offered to all who meet the basic criteria. Every missing person is equal.

The “startling but true” data of over 600,000 missing persons annually, speaks to this silent epidemic to which we persistently try to give a much needed voice.

Monica Caison and her dedicated volunteers across the nation are truly inspiring and are very deserving of the honor of the Great Non-Profit for 2020.

Review for Community United Effort (CUE), Wilmington, NC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The Cue Center for Missing Persons is an amazing non-profit whose lifeblood begins with volunteerism and dedication to the cause in a number of ways. Many of the families associated with a missing persons case and/or unsolved homicide frequently find their sense of purpose and equilibrium with this family oriented group. Personally, I found a surrogate home and means of caring, expression and manner of assisting others that fits with my personality and talents when biological family members often do not, or cannot take an interest in such endeavors.

Since 1994, Monica Caison has sacrificed much with her tireless dedication, to provide resources, reassurance, comfort, a sense of hope, and when possible, resolution or recovery from their painful ordeal. Her passion has fueled the fire to serve thousands of victims both in the U.S .and in foreign counties The Cue Center for Missing Persons has the distinction and credibility of longevity, skilled experience and an impressive track record, without compromising standards and protocols when searching for missing loved ones. As a homicide survivor and State Coordinator It is an honor to serve them in my home state of Connecticut and beyond.

The Cue Center for Missing Persons fills a huge void for mankind with the "best kept secret" that nearly 90,000 persons go missing in the US when current statistics are gathered. Monica Caison and her cross country team of skilled volunteers work from a strategic plan in every case to try to get the most from any search and public event in a positive manner. Treating the family with respect, compassion and providing a sense of purpose during their crisis is so important. In addition to enlisting the help of volunteers with the appropriate skill sets, formulating a customized plan, educating the family, extended family, building awareness,working cooperatively with law enforcement, and keeping the flame of hope ever present , absent of sensationalism are some of the strengths of this fine organization. As a homicide survivor, and State Coordinator from Connecticut, I am grateful to contribute to their mission to help find missing persons! It was a great personal honor be the recipient of significant awards at their recent Annual Cue Center Conference in 2016. I am proud to be affiliated with this fine organization who asks nothing of their fellow man or woman, and yet gives so much of value from the heart, in time expenditure and skill to find a missing person , to bring resolution and begin the road to peace and healing.
