The Nancy Jo Foundation is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization that provides families with a community and resources to help locate their missing children and loved ones. Founded by Stacey Andrade King, the foundation aims to facilitate the reunion of children and loved ones with their families.

Stacey initiated the foundation with the goal of helping to reunite children and loved ones with their families. Nancy Jo, Stacey's mother, was tragically murdered when Stacey was 12, and her family has been actively seeking justice since her childhood. Despite relentless efforts, Nancy Jo's body has never been found, leaving her family without closure. Stacey's life's work has consistently focused on helping people, and her mission is to utilize the knowledge gained by her family to create a supportive space for others in search of their missing loved ones.

The foundation's overarching objective is to connect families with services dedicated to finding missing children and loved ones. Beyond the reunification process, the Nancy Jo Foundation is committed to providing ongoing support for families.
