Awareness & Communication

Awareness Events and Activities

Raising community awareness about child abuse and the role of children’s advocacy centers in responding to abuse can be a daunting challenge. However, NCA Chapters are uniquely positioned to address these issues, and to assist local centers in doing the same.  Chapters throughout the country are exploring creative ways to get the message out and many of these efforts were developed to be shared with and personalized to local communities.  The campaigns can be used effectively for statewide awareness events and media outreach.

 Chapter Communications

A key part of being a successful Chapters includes developing and implementing an effective communication plan.  Such a plan ensures that Chapters and their members and stakeholders share accurate, timely and informative communications – not just among themselves but also with a state legislators, funders and the general public. Chapters can use a variety of means to communicate, such as websites, newsletters, social media sites, brochures, annual reports and more.
