Nala Supports Kids. Will You?

Nala’s Story

Nala once wandered the inner city streets of Toledo, Ohio, until a local therapist that helps abused kids found her and adopted her. Her gentle nature made her a perfect therapy dog for kids who visit Toledo’s Family and Child Abuse Prevention Center. Today, she offers a paw to hold for kids as they receive counseling and heal from terrible trauma.

The National Children’s Alliance (NCA) helps provide justice and healing to abused kids across America through the nearly 800 Children’s Advocacy Centers (CACs) nationwide. CACs are child-friendly facilities where law enforcement, child protection, mental health, medical, and other professionals work together to investigate abuse, help children heal, and hold offenders accountable.


Help Us Help Kids


  • 1,336 counties lack access to CAC services
  • That’s 1 in 5 kids in the U.S.
  • About 136,500 kids are abused each year in those areas


  • $2 billion + donated to charities that protect animals each year
  • Less than $500 million donated to charities that protect kids—that’s more than $4:1
  • CACs need about $327 million each year to cover unmet needs

When you give to NCA, you:

  • Improve the response to sexually exploited children and trafficking
  • Support research that helps children and families exposed to violence
  • Help more kids get evidence-based mental health services they need to heal
  • Make sure kids everywhere have access to a CAC when they need it
