We believe in a world free from sexual abuse and exploitation. We believe every human being deserves the opportunity to live life to its fullest potential; to pursue dreams and ambitions; express creativity and hone talents; seek beauty, truth, and faith; experience hope, joy, and love with family and friends-to thrive. Such a vision requires not only individuals and institutions that work towards its realization but also a culture that embraces its responsibility to preserve and protect human flourishing. We aspire to create that culture.

Since 1962, NCOSE has been an advocate for human dignity, a voice for those who have suffered sexual abuse and exploitation, and a driver of personal and cultural change.

This experience has given us a unique, panoramic perspective enabling us to see that we cannot separate different forms of exploitation as we seek lasting solutions and that the work for human dignity is not and cannot be limited by partisanship or sectarianism of any kind.

The movement to end sexual exploitation looked much different in 1962 than it does today, but this core truth remains: NCOSE's successes are a beacon of hope to all those who felt voiceless and powerless to confront the destructive impacts of sexual exploitation on their lives.
