The Arc of New Jersey has partnered with the Rutgers Center for Advanced Infrastructure and Transportation to conduct a research study about how adults with disabilities use different modes of transportation.
We are looking for members of the New Jersey Self-Advocacy Network, independent self-advocates, and family members to share their stories about how transportation has helped or hindered their ability to get around.
It’s the worst thing that can ever happen to a parent – Your child is missing.
With child abduction making headline news around the world on an almost daily basis and with famous kidnap stories remaining in the public eye – often for decades after a child has been found – it is no wonder that parents list abduction as one of their biggest fears.
Risks Children Face Today
203,000 Family Kidnapping - Victims are usually under the age of 6 and the parents are often in a custody dispute over the child.
58,000 Acquaintance Kidnapping - Perpetrators are often juveniles themselves. Cases often associated with sexual or physical assault.
115 Stranger Kidnapping - Usually happens outside of the home and most victims subsequently subjected to sexual assault.
The Parents' Guide to Preventing Child Abduction, Kidnapping, and Missing Children addresses these concerns and more. Be sure to visit their website for more information and how to prevent child abductions.
