For more than a decade, Michigan Masons have been helping parents and law enforcement secure a peace of mind should the tragedy of a missing child occur through the Michigan Child ID Program. Masonic Lodges throughout the state of Michigan distribute more than 5,000 identification kits to parents at community and school events each year, provided for free through the generosity and volunteerism of the Masons.
Michigan Masons believe that every child deserves to be safe. While countless children fall victim to predators each year, there are steps that parents can take to help prevent this horrific tragedy. The Michigan Masons have stepped up to help with one of the most comprehensive child recovery and identification programs in the nation.
The Michigan Child ID Program provides parents and guardians with a “Child ID Kit” that contains all the vital information necessary to expedite law enforcement efforts to locate a missing child. The program also helps to educate families about abduction prevention and safety.
The kit includes a photo ID card, color photo, digital fingerprints, recorded interview to capture speech characteristics, dental impressions, DNA, and a complete Amber Alert profile.
No data or information on recipients of ChildID kits, except the initial permission form, is kept by The Michigan Masonic Charitable Foundation, sponsoring Lodge, or any volunteers.
