To better respond to child abuse in North Dakota and western Minnesota, Red River Children's Advocacy Center, or RRCAC, was created by a multi-disciplinary group partnership of dedicated, regional and local professionals. It is governed by community volunteers and agency representatives dedicated to the RRCAC mission.

As a charitable corporation the RRCAC provides a safe and neutral setting to coordinate critical services. Activities are supported by public and private donations, appropriations, local and statewide grants, and in-kind contributions from agency partners, community service organizations, foundations and businesses. 

The mission of the Red River Children's Advocacy Center is to facilitate a community response to child maltreatment through a team approach to investigation, treatment, prosecution and prevention.

Locations of Service

The RRCAC is located in a professional, comfortable, facility. Special care has been taken to create a child-friendly environment. The center accommodates the members of the multidisciplinary team, ensures a safe atmosphere for children and families, houses administrative and program offices, and offers a one location setting to better serve victims and families. Many of the comforts found at the center have been contributed by donors from caring individuals and communities. 

Although based in Fargo, ND, the RRCAC also has an office in Grand Forks, ND.
