Tracy McLaughlin, a luxury real estate agent and major shareholder in Pacific Union International, has started a fund to provide housing to families of missing children.

The fund’s co-founder is Marc Klaas, who became a child safety advocate after the kidnapping and murder of his 12-year-old daughter, Polly Klaas.

“After an abduction, parents may not be able to work as they devote every minute to searching for their children,” McLaughlin told the Marin Independent Journal. “I started the fund to help with mortgage and rent payments.”

McLaughlin donates a percentage of each commission she earns to the Klaas Family Housing fund. Its first recipient was Michelle Knight, one of three Cleveland women held captive for more than a decade. Source:
