Every two years, NCA asks Children’s Advocacy Centers (CACs) to participate in an NCA Member Census. This survey gathers data from all CACs and serves as a comprehensive snapshot of our field at a point in time. The participation of each and every CAC is critical to ensuring that all CACs' unique needs and experiences are reflected.
CAC directors will receive an email with personalized links for the CAC Survey during the first week of October and responses are due by November 17th. Without every voice contributing, we will have an incomplete picture of the critical work of the CAC field - please watch for the email and complete the survey as soon as possible. All CACs who have completed the survey by November 1 will be entered into a drawing for a prize -- an Apple Ipad!
The survey covers topics including but not limited to mental health services, victim advocacy, teleservices, work with Tribal Nations and services to victims of the commercial sexual exploitation of children. Results from past Census surveys have been used to highlight successes in the field, to identify training and resource needs, to pinpoint emerging trends, and to support advocacy for funding and other resources to support your work. Findings are shared back with the field to support work at the local, national, and regional levels - examples of past resources that are supported by the Census can be found on the Census page of NCA Engage.
Please contact Erin Casey, NCA Program Evaluation Manager, at email@example.com with any questions, and thank you in advance for your contributions to this important survey!
