Our Story

Portrait of a confident young boy outdoors

National Children’s Alliance (NCA) is a professional membership organization on a mission to make one big difference, one child at a time. Reaching everyone with a voice in eradicating abuse—from families, advocates, partner agencies, communities, researchers, and all the way to Capitol Hill—our members power a national movement to keep children safe. Featuring the largest network of care centers support child abuse victims in the country, NCA is a model in outcome-driven collaboration.
