The abduction of Elizabeth Smart was one of the most followed child abduction cases of our time. Elizabeth was abducted on June 5, 2002, and her captors controlled her by threatening to kill her and her family if she tried to escape. Fortunately, the police safely returned Elizabeth back to her family on March 12, 2003, after being held a prisoner for 9 grueling months.
Through this traumatic experience, Elizabeth has become an advocate for change related to child abduction, recovery programs, and National legislation. Elizabeth triumphantly testified before her captor and the world about the very private nightmare she suffered during her abduction, which led to conviction.
The Founder of the “Elizabeth Smart Foundation”, Elizabeth has also helped promote The National AMBER Alert, The Adam Walsh Child Protection & Safety Act and other safety legislation to help prevent abductions.
Join us for an evening with Elizabeth Smart on Tuesday, March 19th. She’s bringing her message of empowerment to Valdosta for the Anchored in Hope Benefit Dinner to support the Children's Advocacy Center. In 2002, 14-year-old Smart was abducted from her home and spent nine months in captivity. Her kidnapping captured national attention, becoming one of the most-followed child abduction cases in history. All proceeds go directly to supporting our mission of minimizing the trauma to children who have been victims of sexual and physical abuse.
The 26th Annual Conference will enable participants to promote better outcomes for women and children exposed to High-Risk Pregnancy, HIV/AIDS, Substance Abuse, Adolescent and Adult Trauma, Human Trafficking, Opioid and Other Emerging Drug Trends, and other healthcare related issues.

ROAR is first of what SEARHC hopes will be many annual ROAR Women’s Conferences in the region. This year’s keynote speaker is National Child Safety Advocate, and Women’s Empowerment Speaker, Elizabeth Smart. Ms. Smart first entered the public’s consciousness when she was abducted from her Salt Lake City, Utah home in 2002 as a 14-year-old girl and then rescued nine months later.
Elizabeth’s story is one of triumph and victory in spite of tragedy and challenges. Her perseverance stands as proof that a remarkable future is possible, even after experiencing personal trauma or whatever hardships come our way.
Along with Ms. Smart, SEARHC invited women from the organization and the Juneau community to discuss topics that uniquely, often challenge women. Topics include Self Image & Self Worth; Balancing Work & Family Life; Seasons of a Woman’s Life; Nutrition & Exercise; Self-Care; Vision for the Future; and Faith – The Spiritual Woman.
