The Susan Cox Powell Foundation was established in 2010 by Susan’s family and friends. The mission of the Foundation is:
- To assist families of missing persons by providing no-cost strategic media consulting services to ensure that their loved one’s face and name remain in the public eye as long as possible;
- To research and catalog resources across the United States that may be helpful to families of missing persons in an effort to create a resource clearinghouse for other families to use in their time of crisis, and;
- To support domestic violence prevention efforts and to participate in community- and school-based education about domestic violence prevention with a special emphasis on recognizing the early signs of abuse.
