Who We Are
A non-profit of former law enforcement officers and Navy SEALS-turned licensed, insured private investigators, SAVED IN AMERICA assists parents and law enforcement in locating missing and runaway children.
Locate. Your. Child.
At no charge to families, we work to locate missing and runaway children – one of the groups most vulnerable to sexual exploitation. For victims of exploitation, we assist in procuring legal representation, safe housing, and rehabilitative therapy.

Since 1989, The Lynch Foundation For Children has supported a number of important children’s issues, especially those involving reading. We now have an additional focus on a cause of paramount importance. That cause is the fight against the exploding epidemic of child sex trafficking. As unbelievable as it seems, in depth studies show that hundreds of San Diego's children are victims of unthinkable sexual abuse by gangs and organized crime. They hook the victims on heavy drugs and sell the sexual services of a single child for as much as $500,000 per year.
The Lynch Foundation is now working on this major issue in coordination with the San Diego County Human Trafficking Advisory Board, national and local law enforcement, The Children’s Advocacy Institute at University of San Diego, Saved in America, the educational system, and various NGO's. To fight this ugly truth, we are using a three-pronged prevention approach through education, assisting in locating and recovering runaway children, and supporting victims' services. To paraphrase the ancient proverb we believe, “he who saves one child saves the world."
