Resources for Families

If you are a searching parent or family member or are looking for tools to help your family deal with the impact of child abduction this section of the website has information that may be helpful.

The California Child Abduction Task Force is committed to creating resources and providing training to professionals in the field on child abuse from prevention to investigation and reunification. There are many resources available for family members while they are searching for a child or working through the aftermath after the child is reunified with their family. There are too many families who deal with the crisis of abduction and feel they have no where to go to get help or get involved. Below are resources that we hope will assist a family who is dealing with an abduction case or a parent or family member who is hoping to prevent it.

If you have other questions after looking through these resources, please contact your local district attorney or
Team HOPE at 1-866-305-HOPE (4673)
