About:


In 1986, six youth and adult survivors of child abuse and neglect formed what has become a nation-wide movement, the National Child Rights Alliance, which is the only national organization directed entirely by youth and adult survivors of abuse and neglect. (Non-abused supporters are important to our work as well.)

The NCRA has a dual definition of child abuse that encompasses not only the familial abuses which are commonly associated with the term child abuse - child beating, rape, murder, emotional abuses, etc. - but also those of society at large. Whether a child is deprived of safety, food, dignity, medical care, shelter or emotional support by the actions of an individual parent or by the actions of a negligent society does not make the suffering of a child any less." NCRA seeks to change economic, social, legal, medical, cultural and parental practices that harm youth.

About:


The National Chronic Care Consortium [NCCC] is a mission-driven organization of leading-edge health networks dedicated to transforming the delivery of chronic care services, who share a vision of integrated care for individuals with chronic health conditions, from the time of earliest condition awareness until problem resolution or death. This vision emanates from a recognition that the primary business of the healthcare industry is changing from acute care to chronic care. People with serious chronic conditions are healthcare's highest-cost and fastest-growing service group. Current administration, financing, and service delivery methods are increasingly ineffective and inefficient in addressing the multidimensional needs of people with chronic conditions.

The National Chronic Care Consortium's mission is twofold: to serve as an operational laboratory for NCCC members in developing innovative care programs for the chronically ill and to serve as a national resource center in transforming the current national care delivery systems to improve quality and reduce costs of standard operating procedures used by other mainstream purchasers, payers, and providers.
