Children die due to the fractured, overburdened, and technologically archaic U.S. child protection system. Many innovations and technological solutions exist today that can be implemented to save lives. The U.S. must create a 21st-century child welfare system. NCCASP unites front-line state and local innovators who have dedicated their careers to reducing violence against children in order to create a system that does better for vulnerable children.
Established in April of 2017, NCCASP aims to empower professionals in state and local jurisdictions to identify solutions and create change, by connecting them to national resources and allies in the field.
