Sanford Health Dakota Children's Advocacy Center:
The Sanford Health Dakota Children's Advocacy Center is a program that is committed to improving the response to child abuse. We are a community partnership that utilizes a comprehensive multidisciplinary team approach to investigating child abuse.
Professionals from social services, law enforcement, prosecution, victim advocacy and the medical and mental health communities come together under one roof so that a child only has to tell of his or her abuse one time.
The DCAC is fully funded through grants, donations and third party payers. Supporters include Sanford Health, the State of North Dakota, North Dakota Department of Human Services, Victims of Crime Act, Justice Assistance Grant, Children's Advocacy Centers of North Dakota, Midwest Regional Children's Advocacy Center and the National Children's Alliance.
