Client Testimonials

“I am honored and humbled at the support and hard work of TCM. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Thank you everyone for your well wishes and prayers. I am relieved my father was found safe, dry, and warm. I cannot say thank you enough!  Thank you.”

“When my daughter went missing, this organization reached out to me in my time of stress and need. They went above and beyond my expectations. Not only did they assist in finding her, but they helped find and get her to a safe place. Melissa Rangel was my contact there and blew me away with her devotion to my case.  I cannot thank them enough. They were definitely the answer to this mother’s prayers. Thank you so much TEXAS CENTER FOR THE MISSING and Melissa Rangel (my angel).”

“I’m so grateful for what TCM did.  The flyer that they created led me directly to my daughter.  May God forever bless the entire TCM team.  Much love for Ms. Melissa!  She has kept in touch with me since the very beginning.  Even after Daja was found, she kept in contact with me.  That really means a lot to me.”
