Invest in programs to provide support for children with addicted parents. Through your generosity, you can let these kids know there is hope. Help melt away the messages that have lived in these homes for generations: “Don’t talk,” “Don’t feel,” “Don’t trust.” Please consider contributing to NACoA today, to help ensure no child of an alcoholic or drug dependent parent (COA) grows up locked in fear, silence, or isolation. We need your support to bring hope, health, and healing directly to children in need.

With your support, we can expand prevention and recovery programs that focus on healing the whole family system with a unique and specialized focus on the children, increase public awareness of the adverse consequences impacting the children, advance the knowledge of professionals who are in the best position to identity and assist the children; influence public policy impacting COAs, and continue to be an amplified voice for children by sharing loving messages of hope and healing through multiple avenues online and other mass media outlets. Your contribution will help us break the cycle of addiction, starting by simply letting the children know “You are NOT alone.”
