Helping Indiana Child Advocacy Centers be the right place for abused and neglected children
When children in Indiana disclose an allegation of abuse, neglect, sexual assault, or are a witness to a crime, law enforcement and DCS turn to Child Advocacy Centers.
The Indiana Chapter of NCA is on a mission to empower CACs to be the best and right place for kids to talk about their experiences in a safe, neutral, child-friendly environment.
