Mission Statement

National Children's Alliance promotes and supports communities in providing and coordinated investigation and comprehensive response to child victims of abuse through Children's Advocacy Centers and Multi-disciplinary Teams.

Description

The goal of National Children's Alliance (NCA) is to help ensure that all communities are equipped to provide a coordinated investigation and comprehensive response to child victims of abuse. NCA has been working towards this goal for over 25 years by providing the necessary support, advocacy, and training to sustain and grow the children's advocacy center (CAC) model. CACs are child-focused, facility-based programs with representatives from many disciplines working together (in multi-disciplinary teams, or MDTs) to investigate, prosecute, and treat victims of child abuse. NCA has 10 standards for CAC accreditation that ensure each facility offers consistent, quality services that represent best practices based on the latest evidence. Through NCA's support and leadership, the CAC movement has grown to over 800 member CACs; in 2015, CACs served more than 311,000 children across the U.S. Since 2004, nearly than 3 million children have been served by CACs.
