As a volunteer with the Native American Children's Alliance (NACA), and a professional in the non-profit world myself, I can't imagine supporting a better cause. We need organizations like NACA in order to prevent and eliminate child abuse in native communities. America's indigenous people deserve better, and NACA's holistic and multidisciplinary approach is exactly what is needed to end the cycle of abuse. I highly recommend supporting NACA in any way that you can. You can make a real difference in the lives of native children with your support and advocacy of this small but fantastic organization.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the dedication of the Executive Director.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

focus on more external communication. Though they are well on their way to achieving this goal.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

that everything I do makes a huge impact and is greatly appreciated.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

fabulous and incredibly appreciative.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

end child abuse in Native communities by ending the cycle of child sexual abuse, preventing future abuse, and working to heal past abuse!

Ways to make it better...

I had more hours in the day!

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

funding. They work with an specific population, Native Americans, but yet not a specific tribe. They are a national organization so their funding is frustratingly limited.

One thing I'd also say is that...

I will continue to volunteer with this organization until they have worked themselves out of job; i.e. end child abuse in Native communities. I fully believe it can be done with more support, both on a national and local level.
