We have a single purpose at NAASCA, to address issues related to childhood abuse and trauma including sexual assault, violent or physical abuse, emotional traumas and neglect .. and we do so from two specific perspectives:
1) educating the public, especially as related to getting society over it's taboo of discussing childhood sexual abuse, presenting facts showing child abuse to be a pandemic, worldwide problem that affects everyone
2) offering hope and healing through numerous paths, providing many services to adult survivors of child abuse and information for anyone interested in the many issues involving prevention, intervention and recovery. http://www.naasca.org/
The OffenderWatch® Initiative (OWI) is the leading national organization whose mission is to increase public awareness of registered sex offenders through grass-roots efforts of education, community awareness, and increased government interaction.
In partnership with law enforcement, OWI mails millions of community notification postcards nationwide every year alerting citizens of sex offenders living in their neighborhoods. We are the only service that receives the info directly from law enforcement.
Adult Survivors of Child Abuse (ASCA SM) is an international self-help support group program designed specifically for adult survivors of neglect, physical, sexual, and/or emotional abuse. The ASCA SMprogram offers:
The National Children’s Alliance is a professional membership organization dedicated to helping local communities respond to allegations of child abuse in ways that are effective and efficient – and put the needs of child victims first.
Prevention, intervention, treatment, and community outreach. Childhelp programs and services help children from any situation and let them experience the life they deserve: one filled with love. The principle theme across all of our programs is to provide children we serve with an environment of compassion and kindness.
The National Child Abuse Hotline is dedicated to the prevention of child abuse. Serving the U.S. and Canada, the hotline is staffed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week with professional crisis counselors who—through interpreters—provide assistance in over 170 languages. The hotline offers crisis intervention, information, and referrals to thousands of emergency, social service, and support resources. All calls are confidential.
When a child experiences abuse or witnesses a violent crime, their life changes. Often, children feel scared and confused about what happens next. Non-offending family members are wrestling with their own mix of emotions and can find it difficult to know what steps to take next. It is our goal at our Children’s Advocacy Center to welcome children and their families and guide them through this trying time. Our center is the region's only not-for-profit organization that coordinates the efforts of child protection staff, law enforcement professionals, family advocates, medical experts and mental health clinicians under one roof fostering hope and healing for children and their families. http://www.childrensadvocacy.net/

A resource that provides information about substance abuse and addiction.
Parental substance abuse is a major factor contributing to child abuse and neglect. In turn, childhood abuse massively increases the risk of people turning to drugs and alcohol. Our mission is to be a support and an informational resource to guide families suffering through these types of issues.
