Friends of MMF

Be a Volunteer

What does it mean to be a friend of the Miya Marcano Foundation?

If you are a member of the community, you will spread the word about any missing persons case that comes your way. If you are able to, you will attend search parties and put up flyers. If the missing persons case brings to light an issue in your community, you will gather and rise to the occasion, to help the issue be resolved.

If you are a member of the media, you will ensure every missing persons case is treated equally. You will follow up with the police on how the case is proceeding. You will ensure any places of employment or housing involved are assisting the police as requested. If they are not cooperating with the police or responding to your requests for comment, you will escalate coverage.

If you are a representative or senator, you will use your platform to spread word of a missing persons case to the public, the media, the police, and help ensure the police takes every case seriously and treats it with respect. You will contact the family to ask if law enforcement is handling their case well, and law enforcement is not, then you will help ensure that their case is taken more seriously.

If you are a lawyer, you will work with the Foundation to ensure that each case is treated fairly and assist with being a watchdog and that families understand their rights every step of the way.

If you are a university, college, or other school, and the missing persons case is a student, teacher, or employee of your school, you will notify the student body immediately. You will offer assistance in the search, spread word through all possible outlets, and provide psychological services to those affected. You will ensure teachers and professors offer only kindness and understanding when students affected by the missing persons case fall behind on work.

If you are a community organization or church, you will provide meals, water, and comfort to families who may be looking for their loved ones. You will help the household maintain a sense of normalcy in their time of need by taking children to school or watching them while their parents are busy. You will help raise funds from the community for any lodging or transportation fees the family requires, and help spread the word of the missing person.

If you are an activist group, you will assist with organizing search parties, providing resources to family members, using social media platforms to spread word.
