The mission of the Michigan Chapter of the National Children's Alliance (MINCA) is to unify and strengthen Michigan's response to child victims of abuse through sustainable growth, collaboration, and empowerment of Children's Advocacy Centers (CACs). MINCA is the coordinating entity between all accredited, associate, and developing Children's Advocacy Centers (CACs) across the state.
Our vision is that all of Michigan's children will have access to a Children's Advocacy Center.
The Michigan Chapter of the National Children's Alliance is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization and an accredited chapter member of the National Children's Alliance.
