Naples Alliance for Children is a private, nonprofit 501(C)3 volunteer organization that advocates for the rights, needs, care, safety and education of infants, children, youth, and families.
We identify gaps in children and family services and facilitate the filling those gaps through networking with community organizations and agencies. We promote and support public and private programs that directly enhance and enrich the lives of children and families. Our work complements other services provided for children and families in Collier County. Children’s service, education, health and juvenile justice professionals and child advocates are able to exchange ideas and avoid duplication of services by networking through NAFC. Local service agencies derive benefits from the efforts of NAFC committees and the NAFC information center.
