In September 2005, Joe Carrillo saw a poster of a missing 15-year-old that went missing on his birthday in June while bodyguarding a politician. The parents were offering a $5,000.00 reward for locating their daughter. Nine days later Joe and his investigative partner Ana Lanuza brought the girl home refusing the reward. Carrillo realized that this work would be the way he would repay his adopted parents for saving him from an orphanage in Quebec, Canada and continued his efforts to locate runaways for nine years anonymously, never charging a fee for his services. In 2014 an international network produced a four-part series on Carrillo's work and the Bringing Them Home Project was born. Today the BTHP is a statewide organization with hundreds of affiliates nationwide poised to locate your child when they go missing. Having learned the power of the number one, the core belief of 1 Child 1 Life is ingrained in all who participate in the Bringing Them Home Project. Although to Carrillo any number above one is unimportant, estimates are that he has brought home over 800 kids with his efforts, one at a time.
