What’s It Like to Work at NCAC?


We have an important mission, but it’s our 65 great staff members who truly make NCAC a Best Place to Work. Most of our staff are located at least part of the time at our beautiful campus in Huntsville, Alabama, but we are also fortunate to have several fully remote staff from multiple states across the eastern and central time zones.

While we deal with serious topics and the work can be challenging, we foster a supportive culture including taking time to celebrate successes and to show appreciation, being there for each other through ups and downs, and building community through in-person and virtual department get togethers, agency-wide staff meetings, appreciation lunches, holiday parties, etc. Like many organizations over the past few years, we are continuing to learn how to support each other and how to develop new ways to build connections even as the workplace and the world changes.


We Value Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

NCAC has a foundational belief that all children should be protected from abuse and neglect, and those who experience child abuse or neglect should have access to quality services to help them heal from this experience no matter the color of their skin, the language they speak, their religious beliefs, or any other means of categorizing them.   In addition, NCAC believes it is important to be inclusive not only to our clients but also to our staff, partners and global audiences. As stated in the NCAC’s Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Committee’s charter, “we recognize and appreciate the importance of creating an environment in which all employees feel valued, included, and empowered to do their best work and bring innovative ideas to the table.”  For those who are interested in working at or volunteering for NCAC, we hope you are ready to join us on our learning journey of how to be increasingly culturally responsive and supportive to diverse staff, clients and associates around the world.


We offer a comprehensive benefits package. Full-time employees are eligible for:

  • Eight hours of annual leave/vacation per month
  • Eight hours of sick leave per month
  • Four hours of personal leave per month to be used to balance work/personal life needs
  • 10 or more holidays
  • Medical, Dental, Vision and Life insurance
  • Retirement savings via a 401(k) plan - available to most part-time and full-time employees - 100% match of the employee's contributions up to 5% of their salary

Looking for internships?

We have limited unpaid intern opportunities. Positions for undergraduate and graduate students in our Intervention and Prevention programs are usually filled at least one or two semesters ahead of time, so please plan ahead. Opportunities for the summer and in administrative functions, such as fundraising, are more flexible. Clinical Interns in Intervention/Therapy are typically second year MSW students and require a two-semester commitment (Fall/Spring).
