The Northeast Regional Children’s Advocacy Center (NRCAC) enhances the important work of State Chapters, CACs, and MDTs. We provide boots-on-the-ground support and stay attuned to the needs of each of the 9 states in our region.  

Every State Chapter, CAC, and MDT in the Northeast Region is unique. Whether you are part of a fully staffed Chapter, or a brand new CAC, NRCAC meets you where you are and equips you with the training and technical assistance you need. We also facilitate connection and collaboration with our region and beyond.

The four Regional Children’s Advocacy Centers (RCACs) were established in the Victims of Child Abuse Act legislation in 1992 to provide training and technical assistance to child abuse professionals located within each U.S. Census region. Funding for the RCACs is managed by the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention, a component of the Office of Justice Programs within the U.S. Department of Justice.

Since our inception, the Philadelphia Children’s Alliance has served as our operators and grantee. As our regions grow, we are growing along with them to adapt and meet the needs of professionals helping children heal. By working together and providing you with the support you need, we can help end the cycle of abuse.
