Abstract: The development of this directory was coordinated by the Federal Agency Task Force for Missing and Exploited Children, which was established in 1995 to serve as an advocate for children, to coordinate Federal services and resources, and to promote cooperation and collaboration. The Task Force includes representatives from 16 Federal agencies and 1 private agency that work directly with cases that involve missing, abducted, and exploited children and their families. As used in this directory, the term "missing child" refers to any youth under the age of 18 whose whereabouts are unknown to his/her legal guardian. The term "child exploitation" refers to any child under the age of 18 who had been exploited or victimized for profit or personal advantage, including children who are victims of pornography, prostitution, sexual tourism, and sexual abuse. This directory contains information on the services, resources, and technical assistance and support that are available during the investigation of cases that involve missing and exploited children. It describes the role of each Task Force agency in the location and recovery of missing and exploited children, the types of services and support that are available, the procedures for accessing these services, and instructions for obtaining additional information. One section of the directory lists the agencies by function performed. These functions are training, technical assistance, legal assistance to children and families, litigation assistance, publications, and research and evaluation. In another section, agencies are listed according to the services they provide to missing and exploited youth and their families, Federal prosecutors, State and local prosecutors, law enforcement agencies, State and local government agencies, Native American tribes, direct service providers and youth service agencies, nonprofit organizations, and the general public. Agencies are also listed according to assistance they provide in various types of cases that involve missing and exploited children. In the main body of the directory, the following information is provided on each agency: agency description, services, availability of services, publications, and agency contact information. Appendices provide supplementary information on various relevant services and agencies.
