About CACs

Evidence shows that the Children's Advocacy Center (CAC) model greatly improves outcomes for children and families that have experienced abuse. National Children’s Alliance is dedicated to ensuring that every child has access to CAC services.  To monitor progress in this mission, NCA creates maps depicting CAC locations and coverage areas.

Our Policy Partners

Teamwork is at the very heart of the Children's Advocacy Center (CAC) model, and at National Children’s Alliance we believe that cooperation extends well beyond our own membership and multidisciplinary teams.  That is why we are proud to partner with a number of like-minded organizations that strive to improve the lives of children and families.

How America pays for CACs

CACs are public-private partnerships that draw resources from a range of sources, including both federal and state public funding streams. Learn more about our state and federal funding streams here.
