Joe Mazzilli spent 15 years with the NYPD busting every kind of criminal, dealing with every kind of crime. But what he was most affected by were the runaway kids he saw fall through the cracks only to end up abused, exploited, or killed. Now, Mazzilli’s a private investigator who has assembled a squad of highly-skilled P.I.s devoted to rescuing runaways, and bringing them home.

Our team of skilled private investigators rescue runaway teenagers and reunite them with their families, PRO BONO TO THE FAMILIES THAT CAN NOT AFFORD TO PAY A PRIVATE INVESTIGATOR.
