The Alaska Children’s Alliance is a State Chapter of the National Children’s Alliance, and is a not-for-profit 501(c)3 coalition of established and developing child advocacy centers (CACs), multidisciplinary teams (MDTs) and child protection teams (CPTs) dedicated to improving community responses to child maltreatment.
The Alaska Children’s Alliance, or ACA, was founded in 2001 with a membership of three centers and three developing centers. Today our membership has grown to nine centers and one developing center, serving children and families throughout Alaska.
In FY13, 1,726 children from 209 communiities throughout Alaska received services from a Child Advocacy Center. Since the first center opened in 1996, over 19,700 children and their families have been served!
