NCAC’s Response to COVID-19

Our hearts and thoughts go out to the people who have been affected by this unprecedented event and we appreciate the healthcare workers, emergency personnel, and governments around the world who are on the front line working to contain the coronavirus.  The NCAC is monitoring the rapidly evolving situation and has implemented precautions to protect not only our employees and MDT members, but also our direct service clients, donors, and training customers.

In an effort to “flatten the curve”, the NCAC has halted most campus-based and in-person activities. The majority of NCAC employees are teleworking for the foreseeable future. Please follow us on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter for updates and tips for families and caregivers

Information for Clients:

A select number of intervention staff members are on call to perform forensic interviews and medical exams. Anyone visiting campus for a forensic interview will be screened for COVID-19 symptoms and exposure when the visit is scheduled and again before the interview or exam begins.

Therapists are checking in with clients by phone and using tele-health technology to virtually meet with clients. To speak with your NCAC therapist call 256-327-3853 and leave a voicemail for your therapist.

If you are a Healthy Families program client, your Family Support Worker will contact you with details about virtual home visits, should these become available.  If you need assistance, please contact your Family Support Worker. 

If you are a Partnership in Parenting program client, your Coordinator will contact you with information about virtual sessions, should these become available. If you need assistance, please contact your Coordinator.

NCAC Parenting Classes have been postponed until at least mid-April.  If you have questions about NCAC Parenting Classes, please contact Tara Bah at tbah@nationalcac.org.
