    New Tools
    Once again advances in technology have brought us a new tool to help keep our children safe. The extreme miniaturization of cell phone and GPS technology has made possible GPS tracking devices small enough to easily fit in a pocket, yet still provide excellent satellite reception and cellular network connectivity.

    We recently had the opportunity to do extensive testing of some of these devices in real world scenarios, and we're so impressed that we are working with the distributor to bring you unique Hornbeck Foundation branded devices to enhance you child's safety.

    We're also revaming our FREE MyID4Life Kidz Kardz program to make it even easier for you to obtain an ID card for your children. Soon you will be able to simply upload your child's photo to our secure website, fill out a small form with information about your child, then click print. Your card will be prepared and on its way to you within 72 hours!
