A non-profit 501c3 agency since 1998, the BRACAC is an Accredited Member of the National Children’s Alliance and a Full Member of the Kentucky Association of Children’s Advocacy Centers.
Our mission is possible only through the collaboration efforts of the various professionals that must intervene when sexual abuse and/or exploitation of a child is disclosed or suspected. The Barren River Area Child Advocacy Center or “BRACAC” starts with the idea that no one agency or professional can adequately respond and meet the needs of a child victim. Rather, it takes the expertise of a core multidisciplinary team of professionals – law enforcement, child protection services, prosecutors, physicians, therapists and professional advocates – all working together to provide children and their non-offending family members or caregivers with quality services and support they need.
The trauma and impact of sexual abuse can be devastating to a child. But by working together at the BRACAC, children and families receive quality services in a trauma-informed environment to stop abuse, begin the healing process and enhance the prosecution of offenders of this horrific crime against children.
