NCARC staff recently reached out to the directors of six children's advocacy centers (CACs) accredited by the National Children's Alliance (NCA) and operated by the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma, the Fort Peck Assiniboine and Sioux Tribes (Montana), the Oglala Sioux Tribe (South Dakota), the Puyallup Tribe (Washington), the Salt River Pima Maricopa Indian Community (Arizona), and the Tulalip Tribes (Washington). Each of these CACs has either successfully completed the NCA accreditation process or is currently seeking accreditation. The directors were asked questions that might be of interest to others who are interested in developing accredited CACs in their communities. To encourage open conversation, the names of the directors have not been included. The responses have also been edited for clarity and length.
