NCA was founded by a core group of chaplains and community activists in 2010 to fill the need for a cohesive network of chaplains available to help the people in need at a moment’s notice. Each member is a dedicated, professional public servant who already spent more hours than exist in a day helping others They joined forces to combine resources and increase the power of their impact. Their diverse team includes legal experts, community leaders, medical personnel and clergy members spanning the spectrum of cultures. To date, they have helped thousands in crisis, both public service providers and individuals. They have also changed the face of tolerance and acceptance, increasing understanding of diverse cultures in departments and organizations throughout the country.
