How we can help you tell your story
National Children’s Alliance (NCA) makes a difference, one child and voice at a time. As a not-for-profit membership and accrediting organization providing comprehensive care through 900 Children’s Advocacy Centers (CACs) and 50 State Chapters nationwide, we unify and amplify our voices to command better outcomes. With a forward-thinking approach that stays at the forefront of every child’s future, we are the beginning of child abuse’s end.
We are also a trusted reporting source for national and regional media. Our national model mirrors the local CAC model: we bring together the professionals that help children all in one place. Just as a CAC serves as its community’s expression of care for children by gathering law enforcement, child welfare, medical, mental health, and other experts, CAC gathers the top national institutions and thinkers from across our movement to help lead children to a brighter future that follows the latest science.
