National Children’s Alliance (NCA)
The National Children’s Alliance (NCA) is a membership organization, which was developed in 1987 to help states and localities respond to allegations of child abuse. This organization is devoted to increasing the efficiency and effectiveness of this response. Currently, NCA has more than 750 Child Advocacy Centers as members and provides services to these Centers on a national level. NCA supports and empowers local communities to provide comprehensive, coordinated and effective services to victims of child abuse by offering training and networking opportunities, peer support, technical assistance, grant administration and advocating for the best interest of CACs on a national level.
Currently, NCA has a cooperative agreement with the United States Department of Justice Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention which will allow for the administration of $ 9,884,427 in grants to Child Advocacy Centers and State Chapters, such as NYSCA.
