National Council On Child Abuse and Family Violence

1984 - 2017

Our Thirty-third Year of Service

Fiscal 2015-16 ANNUAL REPORT


Financial Information | Financial Information Summary | Historical Highlights

This Annual Report is our opportunity to provide the public and our contributors with an accounting of the program activities and financial condition of the National Council on Child Abuse and Family Violence and the American Campaign for Prevention of Child Abuse and Family Violence that it leads each year.

Five hundred children die each year from abuse and at least half of all child abuse fatalities are children under one year of age. Domestic violence will occur at least once in two-thirds of all marriages. One out of every twenty older Americans are victims of elder abuse but only one out of ten cases of elder abuse get reported.

The American Campaign for Prevention of Child Abuse and Family Violence continues to experience a significant expansion in its outreach through the media and through the Internet in response to victims, families, students, churches, libraries, schools, and civic groups.

NCCAFV also continues to provide training and technical assistance to agencies each year in the United States and internationally in preventing child abuse, spouse/partner abuse and elder abuse.

The American Campaign receives generous financial support through gifts and bequests from individuals, foundations and corporate donors, and through the America’s Charities Federation, the Combined Federal Campaign and private sector corporate workplace campaigns.  No grant support is sought or received from any government source.

On behalf of the Board of Directors, our thanks to all whose interest, voluntary efforts and financial donations help NCCAFV and its American Prevention Campaign make a difference for so many of America’s hurting families -- children, women, men, and the elderly.

National Family Violence HelpLine

For fourteen years, from 1984 until 1998, NCCAFV’s toll-free National Family Violence HelpLine provided prevention information to the public on child abuse, spouse/partner abuse and elder abuse, and referral assistance to victims who telephoned from all fifty states, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The HelpLine operated twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week until it was supplanted by the Federal Government's funding of a National Domestic Violence Hotline.

Over the years, well-known entertainment personalities contributed valuable HelpLine public service messages which were aired on radio/television networks and stations throughout the nation each year, increasing awareness of this crucial toll-free service to the public.
