Born out of the nightmare
that was our story,
our foundation rests on the single question.
Too many families experience the nightmare of having a child go missing. I know what it is like to be that child. I know what it is like to think that one false move may lead to not only your own death but the death of family members as well. Nobody can ever blame a child for their actions when they are being threatened, bullied, forced, or coerced into doing something unthinkable. That is why the “Elizabeth Smart Foundation” was created, because what if we could prevent future crimes against children? Wouldn’t it be worth it to do everything to bring home that one child?
Yes it would.
The Elizabeth Smart Foundation is an organization that convenes the proven efforts of partner organizations to not only prevent future crimes against children, but to address victims, survivors and families with the resources and community they need to encourage hope and empower their future.
