NACC State Coordinators
Share |

The National Association of Counsel for Children’s State Coordinator Program leads expanded outreach and localized support efforts to a growing network of child welfare attorneys.

 

NACC established its first 10 coordinator positions in 2019 in the following states: Alaska, California, Colorado, Iowa, Louisiana, Missouri, Montana, New York, Oklahoma and Washington. In 2020 NACC’s second cohort was added in the following states: Alabama, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Mississippi, Nebraska, Nevada, Ohio, Tennessee, Texas, and Vermont.

 

NACC will receive applications each year to select an additional 10 coordinators from other states and districts, moving to fulfill our 50-state strategy over the next five years. This is a critical time to build community and support practitioners and we are grateful for this volunteer network. See NACC's State Coordinator Position Description for more information.
