About The Advocates 

The Advocates are a group of caring, compassionate women who volunteer their time and talents to raise funds and awareness for the Northern Kentucky Children’s Advocacy Center (NKYCAC). They have a mission that touches the most vulnerable of the population.

Formed in September 2009, they call themselves “The Advocates” because they are Advocates for the children in our community who suffer from abuse or who witness violent crimes. They host several social fundraisers throughout the year.  The largest fundraiser is the Grand Gala held in March.  In 2017, the Gala raised over $100,000 while raising awareness about the needs of child victims of abuse. Through their efforts, The Advocates help the NKCAC achieve its mission to ensure the safety and well being of these special children.

The Advocates were honored by the National Children's Alliance in 2011 with the Group Volunteer Leadership Award. The National Children’s Alliance is a professional membership organization dedicated to helping local communities respond to allegations of child abuse in ways that are effective and efficient. The NCA is the accrediting body for more than 700 Children’s Advocacy Centers nationwide.
