As the national association and accrediting body for CACs, NCA serves as a voice for the movement before lawmakers, funders, and other decision-makers, leads initiatives that advance and support the CAC mission to provide healing and justice for child victims of abuse, and ensures quality care for the children and families our members serve.

EIE has a three-pronged, preventative approach to create and sustain a safe, entertaining, and informative Internet environment:

  • Encourage the technology industry to implement viable technological solutions and family-friendly corporate policy to reduce this threat.
  • Promote legal solutions by calling for aggressive enforcement of existing laws and enactment of new laws to stop the sexual exploitation and victimization of children using the Internet.

The Enough Is Enough mission is to “Make the Internet Safer for Children and Families”.
