“Cherishing children is the mark of a civilized society.” Joan Ganz Cooney

Child Rescue Coalition exists to protect children from sexual abuse and emotional suffering; and to rescue them from harm’s way.

Child Rescue Coalition is a partnership of child exploitation investigators, police officers, digital forensic experts, prosecutors, child welfare agencies, and corporate and private philanthropy. We work together to apprehend and convict abusers of children, rescue those in harm’s way, and importantly, seek to prevent abuse from happening in the first place. At its core is leading-edge technology that identifies, monitors, and ranks the online criminal behavior of child predators on peer-to-peer file-sharing and chat networks.

 

The organization was created by Carly and Desiree Asher as a way to provide state of the art technology to global law enforcement officials at no cost. Child Rescue Coalition is a 501(c)(3) and relies on the generous support of donors to continue to serve law enforcement and communities in their efforts to rescue children and apprehend abusers.

Our Vision: Every child’s innocence is protected.

Protection

Vigilance

Responsibility

We are rigorous in our efforts to ensure our data is accurate and irrefutable.
