Founder Chuck Foreman served approximately 10 years in the U.S. Army with an emphasis in special operations. Following this he spent several years coaching football. He brought a wide range of skill sets to the creation & building of the Organization - precise decision making, objectivity, strong leadership, problem solving and vision. This is reflected in the effectiveness of the CFSI program. Mr. Foreman served the Organization from inception as CEO and during that time nearly 900 children were Found Safe, more than 3,000 volunteers were united in the mission and more than 80,000 were added to the network. The Organization has grown tremendously and great leaders were created. This has allowed Mr. Foreman to hand off the reigns, allowing today's leaders to handle day to day operations while he focuses on growth and taking it to the next level. Being Founder of something this great is for a lifetime and requires a lifetime commitment. Mr. Foreman continues to live up to this commitment daily. He remains actively involved in leading the Organization - providing guidance, daily communication with other Organization heads, attending speaking engagements, working with Sponsors and more. Through what he has created, the others he has empowered and a drive like no other the world continues to become a better place for children.
CEO - Melissa Miles
Since the day I submitted my submission to B.U.R.N., I have been all in to CFSI and it's Divisions. After a few times in the field and talking to other parents who were recipients of this organization's services, I quickly realized the extreme value and urgency of what we do. I wanted to help, I wanted to make a difference and I wanted my efforts to impact this organization.
Each individual I meet has the potential of bringing something to this organization, and each day, I enjoy the fact that I get to work with these dedicated individuals. I thank Chuck Foreman and the CFSI Board Members for allowing me to be such a huge part of this organization of wholehearted team members.
President - Lynn McBride
Lynn graduated high school at age 15 & was associated with the real estate industry for 16+ years. Real Estate allowed her a flexible schedule so she could help in her community which was always important to her. She recently retired her Real Estate license as she found a new passion through the time spent volunteering with CFSI for Missing Children. After moving to Tennessee in 2009 she spent several years trying to find the right volunteer match for her. She started looking into how to help with children and signed up as a NCMEC poster partner, that was about all there was available for a citizen concerning missing children. Around that time a story was published in the paper about a local child that had disappeared. Then, a second story with circumstances identical and the Father's of those children were now working together. Shortly after she saw "Found Safe". The girls were located, not together, but both many States away. She became an avid CFSI follower and after a number of posted Found Safes knew she had found where she belonged. She has been a part of CFSI for more than two years now and currently serves as Organization President. Lynn says, "I can't imagine my life without all of this as a central part of it....once you get involved it is a life changer."
