National Center to Advance Peace for Children, Youth, and Families

The National Center to Advance Peace for Children, Youth and Families (NCAP) was created in response to the reality that involvement in the child welfare and child custody systems can cause irreparable harm to survivors of domestic violence, especially those from Black, Indigenous, and Latinx families and because we believe our communities have the capacity to solve our own problems. As a result, the NCAP is a partnership with Black and Indigenous communities and partners that include Ujima National Center on Domestic Violence in the African American Community, National Indigenous Women’s Resource Center, the Alaska Native Women Resource Center, and Futures Without Violence.
