Our Mission Statement
Ident-A-Child is a nonprofit organization which provides parents with educational resources and information to aid in awareness and the prevention of abuse or abduction of children.
Ident-A-Child provides parents with free Child ID kits for the collection of unique personal identification information which can be used by law enforcement to aid in the recovery of lost or abducted children.
Ident-A-Child is dedicated to Community Service.
In the spring of 1987 Mary Jennings was a graduate student at California State University, Chico and an intern at the Community Legal Information Center (CLIC). It was there she became aware of an opportunity to design and create the Ident-A-Child program.
The first Ident-A-Child Board of Directors was formed and documents were filed with the State of California on February 27th 1987 which established IAC as a 501 (c) (3) non-profit corporation. Board members were comprised of business and community leaders dedicated to raising awareness of the issues surrounding missing and exploited children.
Originally, IAC videotaped and fingerprinted children and had a connection with local law enforcement and media. In the event that a child became missing or was abducted his/her video could be broadcast immediately by local media. Soon the IAC program expanded to reach most of Northern California, serving over 100,000 children of all ages. With the subsequent creation of Amber Alert, IAC has evolved to fill additional needs as suggested by Law Enforcement.
Our current goals are reflected in our mission statement.
