Ready to Make a Difference in the Lives of Children?
Whether you’re a longstanding NACC member or a first time visitor to the site, you have the ability to advance and protect the rights of children and families. Below, we provide a number of ways for you to get involved, from making a one-time donation on our site to engaging in important child welfare advocacy efforts.
Donate to the NACC
The NACC is the nation’s only charity dedicated specifically to enhancing legal representation in child welfare and juvenile justice cases. You tax-deductible donation helps us train and certify child welfare attorneys and caseworkers; host our annual Child Welfare, Juvenile, and Family Law Conference; engage in child welfare policy initiatives; and support our growing professional membership.
At the NACC, we encourage conversation that advances the rights and improves the lives of children and their families. In order to facilitate this conversation, we publish both a weekly blog and a monthly law journal. If you’re a child welfare professional with an interesting perspective on a topic related to child welfare or juvenile justice, we invite you to write for one of our publications.
We’re looking for child welfare professionals with unique speaking ideas for both live and online child welfare trainings. We welcome children’s attorneys, parents’ attorneys, agency attorneys, and juvenile court judges; as well as speakers from the fields of education, mental health therapy, medicine, politics, and social work.

Whether you’re an experienced children’s attorney or lay advocate, you have the ability to protect the rights of children through policy advocacy. Our NACC Policy page offers resources to help you along the way. These include our Policy Agenda, Policy Advocacy Guide, Standards of Practice documents, and information on requesting assistance with amicus curiae and other advocacy efforts.
