Who we are

Our vision is to work collaboratively with our multi-disciplinary team and community to ensure accessible, trauma-informed care services in the pursuit of safety, healing, and justice for all children and their families.

What we do

Our mission is to help children and their families on their path of healing. Baton Rouge Children’s Advocacy Center does this by providing trauma-informed, child-focused services in the aftermath of physical abuse, sexual abuse, or a violent crime.

The BRCAC provides trauma-informed, child-focused services to support young victims of physical and sexual abuse, as well as those affected by violent crimes. We offer comprehensive care, including forensic interviews, therapy, and advocacy, to help children and their families heal. The center is dedicated to creating a safe space for children to be heard and supported on their path to recovery.

 

HOW WE RESPOND TO A TREMENDOUS NEED

Childhood trauma and adverse experiences (also known as ACES) are understood by many to be the most important public health epidemic we face. Childhood trauma affects the structure and architecture of the developing brain. Affecting brain development is linked to lifelong physical and mental illness.

Trauma happens in the lives of so many children. Therefore, it can no longer be viewed as an “oddity” or a problem for health professionals alone.

To make a positive impact, a community-wide response across all disciplines and citizens, with the BRCAC at the helm, is required.
