Our Thirty-Ninth Year of Service

1984 - 2023

Fiscal 2021 - 22 ANNUAL REPORT

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 its American Campaign for Prevention of Child Abuse and Family Violence each year.

Five hundred children die annually 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 or partnerships. 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.

NCCAFV History

Beginning in 1984 and until 1995, when the federal government began funding a hotline, NCCAFV provided a toll-free National Family Violence HelpLine (800) 222-2000, directed by NCCAFV's then Vice President, Mary-Ellen Rood, who was the founding Director (1982-83) of the National Child Abuse Hotline (1-800-4-A-Child). The National Family Violence HelpLine provided referral assistance to domestic violence victims and others seeking information related to child abuse, spouse/partner abuse and elder abuse.

In 1985, NCCAFV formed the National Alliance on Family Violence (NAFV), a network of 64 national, regional and state non-profit organizations and professionals committed to intergenerational prevention of family violence and neglect.

From 1985 until 2010, NCCAFV served in a leadership role in the development of the International Forum for Child Welfare (IFCW), a Swiss International Non-Governmental Organization (INGO).

In 1986, NCCAFV launched its first national public awareness campaign with a television spot featuring Oprah Winfrey.

In 1989, NCCAFV's then president, Alan Davis, chaired the founding meetings in Finland of the Geneva based International Forum for Child Welfare (IFCW) and was elected its first president at the founding General Assembly, serving as founding president from 1989 thru 1992.

In 1991 and 1992, NCCAFV organized and hosted IFCW's 4th annual WorldForum (September 1992) on the beautiful Monterey Peninsula of California in the USA.

Since 1992, NCCAFV has conducted its AMERICAN CAMPAIGN FOR PREVENTION OF CHILD ABUSE & FAMILY VIOLENCE through print, radio and television awareness campaigns with its roster of celebrities including Billy Ray Cyrus, the late Peter Falk, Larry Gatlin, Barbara Mandrell, the late Lou Rawls and Oprah Winfrey. The Campaign published a series of information booklets entitled Facts About Child Abuse & Neglect, Facts About Domestic Violence and Facts About Family Violence. The information in these booklets is now available on this website.

In 1993, the American Campaign's poster series "Children Should Be Seen And Not Hurt" and "Stop Family Violence" were presented the International Award for Excellence In Media On Behalf Of Children in Cambridge, England at IFCW's WorldForum 93 where Diana, Princess of Wales, gave the keynote address to the WorldForum delegates from around the world.

​​NCCAFV prepared the 1995 draft Report to the U.S. Congress on Family Violence on behalf of the Federal Government's Administration for Children and Families in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

From 1996 to 1998, NCCAFV's President, Alan Davis, served on the International Steering Committee and co-chaired the Program Committee of the first World Conference on Family Violence which convened September 1998 in Singapore. 

From 1998 to 2018, NCCAFV served as the Secretariat for the International Network on Family Violence (INFV) which was formed in Singapore.

In 2002, NCCAFV's President, Alan Davis, chaired the program committee for IFCW's 13th annual WorldForum in Honolulu, Hawaii.

From 2001 to 2003, NCCAFV (as INFV's secretariat) organized the Second World Congress on Family Violence (WCFV) held in June 2003 in Prague, Czech Republic.

In 2009-2010, NCCAFV's President, Alan Davis served on the Steering Committee for IFCW's 21st annual WorldForum in New York City and again in 2016 for IFCW's 25th WorldForum in Santa Fe, NM.

From 2011 thru 2023, NCCAFV has continually expanded the "reach" and effectiveness annually of its services, prevention programs and activities through the generosity of individual contributors in social media, in private sector annual corporate workplace campaigns and in the U.S. Federal Government employee's annual Combined Federal Campaign (CFC).

Due to the 2020-23 Coronavirus pandemic's closure of Washington, DC and a need to adapt financially, NCCAFV consolidated its operation after 36 years in DC by relocating nearby to Arlington,VA as of August 2020. 

As a nongovernmental private sector 501(c)(3) nonprofit volunteer organization, NCCAFV and the American Prevention Campaign policy is to not solicit or receive federal, state or local government grants or contracts for its programs or services in order to preserve its founding mission of independent volunteer service to children and families throughout their lifespan.
