But who oversees them?  Accreditation comes from the National Children's Alliance, which oversees the centers in Jackson and Josephine Counties and nearly 800 others. 

NCA Executive Director Teresa Huizar will visit the CAC in Medford next week while in town for a child abuse symposium. 

She joins us to talk about the assistance NCA gives to centers across the country.
