In Loving Memory of Carlie Brucia (1992-2004)

Founded by Matthew J. Barbis after his 11-year-old cousin, Carlie Brucia, was abducted and murdered in Sarasota, FL in 2004. The Rose Brucia Educational Foundation’s goal is to reduce the number of child abductions in the U.S. by educating and empowering young minds with the knowledge necessary to avoid abduction. Utilizing puppets and a formalized educational curriculum, the foundation provides elementary-aged children with the Stranger Safety Awareness Program, free of charge. The Rose Brucia Educational Foundation is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization.


A Message From CNBC’s Sue Herera, Our National Spokesperson

“As the mother of three small children, I share the foundation’s goal to keep our children safe and educate them about stranger safety awareness.”

The Rose Brucia Educational Foundation’s goal is to spread it’s message to all elementary-aged children across The United States. Please encourage your local community and school district officials to download our free Stranger Safety Awareness Program today.

Please contact us at (631) 348-2600 A.S.A.P. to schedule a free program in your child’s elementary school!

    We had the pleasure of having Mr. Patrick Chierichella present an amazing program at our Girl Scout troop meeting this week. He did a fantastic job and our girls left with an important life long lesson on stranger safety.
    Thank you!
