The National Center for Children and Families
Established in1914, the National Center for Children and Families (NCCF) is a private, non-profit child and family welfare agency, dedicated to addressing the needs of vulnerable children, youth and families who have been victimized by abuse/neglect, poverty, homelessness, and domestic violence.
Serving over 3,000 children and families annually throughout the National Capital Region, NCCF's mission is to create total, healthly living environments for vulnerable children, youth and families, and the quality of life which empowers their ability to thrive and demonstrate responsbility.
We envision a society in which children, youth, and families live in sustained, supportive communities, which reinforce the integrity and unity of the family. The vision will be realized through:
- Connecting vulnerable children and families with communities that effectively promote the integration of physical, spiritual, economic, and emotional health.
- Empowering children and families to be self-sufficient, to give back, and to learn to help others in the process.
- Providing an array of services and supports, in collaboration with partners who share a similar vision and values, which engender personal growth for the individual, the family, and the community.
- Advocating for services which are proactive, community-based, preventive, quality, comprehensive, consistent, and address with respect for diversity, the current needs of the community, its children, youth, and families.
