Maddy Child Angel of Santa Cruz (MCASC)
was established by family and friends
to give meaning to the death of 8-year old
Maddy Middleton,
who was lured, raped and murdered
by a teenage neighbor acquaintance.




The group's mission is to
help prevent child abduction, abuse and violence
by predators known by the potential victim.
We work to raise awareness and provide education
to children, families and communities
beyond "stranger danger" to encompass
"before you go, let someone know..."
