What we do
National Children’s Alliance (NCA) is the national association and accrediting body for Children’s Advocacy Centers (CACs). CACs are local centers that provide a coordinated response to:
Investigate child abuse,
Help children heal from abuse, and
Hold offenders accountable.
Services are provided in a safe, child-focused setting, protecting kids from having to relive the trauma of abuse over and over by talking to lots of different professionals, and ensuring that they receive the treatment and care that they need to heal.
Formed in 1988, NCA serves as a voice for abused children by providing support, technical assistance, and quality assurance to CACs for more than 25 years. NCA spearheads the CAC movement nationwide, helping to bring critically needed child advocacy services to those communities in the U.S. still without a CAC.
Who we help
NCA helps children and their families. The scope of the problem of child abuse and neglect in the U.S. is enormous, and can seem overwhelming. But we can, and we will, solve child abuse, one child at a time, by providing high quality, evidence-based intervention services to children and families through Children’s Advocacy Centers. To do so, however, we need your help.

Federal employees and members of the military can support the movement that has helped and protected millions of children around the nation by donating to NCA or making NCA their charity of choice through their local Combined Federal Campaign using CFC #16219.
By the numbers
To support America's communities as they serve child victims of abuse, NCA needs your support. More than 90 cents on every dollar of funding we receive goes directly back to local CACs to help and protect kids, while the rest bolsters the national movement to provide evidence-based support for children and families experiencing abuse.
As a federal employee or member of the military, you work to make America a better and safer place at home and abroad. Now you can help build a better and safer life for our nation's most vulnerable—our children.
Pledge your support and make NCA your charity of choice through the Combined Federal Campaign with CFC #16219 or donate now.
