More children are displaced during Thanksgiving and Christmas than any time of the year. Custodial parents whose children have been allowed to visit a parent who resides outside the home have the hardest time getting their children returned to their legal residence during the holidays. Our efforts help families locate, communicate and facilitate the safe return of children.
I ask that you all will make your yearly donation to COMEC during this time of giving. These funds help us to provide funding for the services that we offer (drug testing, search/recovery of children caught up in custody issues, and the like). Monies should be sent to COMEC, 616 Adams Avenue, Memphis TN 38105 or a Debit/credit card can be used by contacting the office at 901-222-0700. You may also donate through our website.
There are many nonprofits that failed during the past two years or have reduced services to bare bones. We are still providing services at pre-pandemic levels due to our careful financial management. We should all look forward to 2023 with renewed spirit knowing that we play a large part in helping families.
Len Edwards, Executive Director of COMEC
