ABOUT THE ORGANIZATION
National Children’s Alliance (NCA) is the national association and accrediting body for Children’s Advocacy Centers (CACs). Formed in 1988, NCA has been providing support, technical assistance, and quality assurance for CACs, while serving as a voice for abused children for more than 30 years.
COMMITMENT TO DIVERSITY, EQUITY, AND INCLUSION
National Children’s Alliance (NCA) is committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) within our staff, board, and Children’s Advocacy Center (CAC) movement. A diverse, equitable, and inclusive movement is critical not only to achieve a just and welcoming work environment for our workforce and partners: it is also impossible to effectively serve children and families across this country without a movement of agencies and professionals that reflect them and understand their needs.
As the national association and accrediting body for CACs, NCA is committed to achieving universal access to CAC services for children in every community in America and is uniquely positioned to ensure CACs both have the resources they need to truly serve America’s diverse population and also that their accreditation with us requires that they do so equitably and inclusively.
