MSCA Launches ‘Project Home Again' Website

ROCKVILLE, Md. - The Mechanical Service Contractors of America (MSCA) recently launched a new Website dedicated to “Project Home Again,” MSCA’s missing children community relations program. The site, located at, provides anyone interested in the program with information and vital links to missing children resources.

Through MSCA’s Project Home Again, participating member contractors display magnetic posters of local missing children on their service vehicles with the hopes these children will be recognized and found.

“Since 1998, MSCA contractors have been making an important, positive contribution to their local communities by participating in Project Home Again,” said Barbara Dolim, executive director of MSCA. “The new website will help us reach a broader audience to help reunite missing children with their families.”

Using the artwork of children to depict their representation of what is home and family, conveys a powerful visual image that is reinforced by the real-life missing children posters.

The new Website features background information on the program, success stories, a list of participating contractors, media information, and important links and contacts.

Project Home Again posters feature biographical data and a photograph of the child, along with vital contact information for the proper authorities, based on data supplied by MSCA’s partner, the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC). If a child is located, a “Found” sticker is sent to the contractor for placement on that child’s poster.

Project Home Again milestones include:

• Program introduced in 1998.

• Over 5,000 missing child posters distributed.

• Over 200 MSCA members have participated.

• Received two American Society of Association Executives awards for “a program that truly embodies the spirit of the Association’s Advance America campaign” in 2001.

John Walsh, host of FOX TV’s “America’s Most Wanted,” made a presentation at the 2005 Mechanical Contractors Association of America annual convention encouraging participation in Project Home Again and commended the program for its success.
