Measure of Hope is creating a future where parents, guardians and care-givers are better prepared for a time when those they care for should ever go missing.
Studies have shown that time is of the essence when it comes to finding a missing person safe. Disseminating relevant information pertaining to a missing person to emergency and search organizations quickly is often a challenge as parents face a bombardment of emotions and fears. The time to collect and maintain relevant information for your child is when your mind is clear.
Measure of Hope will help parents leverage technology to securely and effectively collect and maintain relevant information for those in their care; making that information accessible wherever they may be.
Through the Software as a Service ( SaaS ) model and utilizing three levels of 128 bit encryption, Measure of Hope is developing an online Child Information Program ( o-ChIP ). The o-ChIP system will give parents a resource to store and retrieve data securely and anywhere there is an Internet connection.
o-ChIP will then be able to integrate data into various law enforcement and alert systems without delay caused by double handling or retyping data.
The NEWS is filled with reports of Children being taken from their family, Teens and Young Adults being lured by online predators and traffickers, Seniors with dementia wondering off never to be found.
The U.S. Department of Justice reports that, “Approximately 800,000 children are reported missing each year – more than 2,000 children every day. 1 in 5 girls and 1 in 10 boys will be sexually victimized before age 18.”
While educating our children on safety practices and how to recognize dangers is the first step in protecting them, a secure detailed database of identifying information will give parents and searchers that measure of hope they need to find their loved one.
It is our aim to make the Measure of Hope online Child Information Program a FREE service to ALL parents, guardians and care-givers without prejudice to any race, religion, color, creed or other socioeconomic label. Your help in funding the completion of the online Child Information Program is greatly appreciated in order to meet our August 2012 Beta test goal.
