NRCAC is one of four regional centers that provides training and technical assistance resources for communities to develop multidisciplinary teams, Children’s Advocacy Centers, and State Chapter organizations of Children's Advocacy Centers.
Regional Children's Advocacy Centers (RCACs)
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. Each RCAC provides trainings, technical assistance, and information services for developing and established multidisciplinary teams, local Children’s Advocacy Centers, and State Chapter organizations of Children’s Advocacy Centers within their region.
