About Barren River Area Child Advocacy Center
More About Barren River Area Child Advocacy Center
It is the mission of the Barren River Area Child Advocacy Center to reduce trauma to child abuse victims by providing one-safe, child-friendly location where teams of professionals work together to pursue justice and offer treatment.
Our vision is to help create and maintain a safe, healthy environment free of child abuse.
The Barren River Area Child Advocacy Center, or "BRACAC," provides support and services to victims of child sexual abuse and their non-offending family members or caregivers. A child-friendly environment that ensures a child's safety, health, and well-being is provided.
The Center starts with the idea that no one agency or professional can prevent and treat the crime of child sexual abuse. Rather, it takes a multidisciplinary team of professionals in law enforcement, child protective services, medical, legal, and mental health who work together to advocate for the rights of a child. This mission is accomplished by:
- Coordinating and supporting a multidisciplinary team investigation
- Providing crisis intervention, advocacy, and treatment services for children and their non-offending family members/caretakers
- Enhancing prosecution, where warranted
- and providing ongoing education and training to the professionals who work to protect the civil rights of child.
