Founded in 2007, River Bridge Regional Center (RBRC) is a Child Advocacy Center (CAC), a child-friendly facility in which law enforcement, child protection, prosecution, mental health providers, medical providers, and family advocates work together as a multi-disciplinary team (MDT) to help children heal and hold offenders accountable.
RBRC is the only CAC between Grand Junction and Summit County to provide services for abused children in Garfield, Pitkin, Rio Blanco, and Eagle County.
In order to treat child abuse and prosecute the abusers effectively, RBRC staff ensures that victim advocates, medical personnel, law enforcement, the District Attorney offices, forensic interviewers, child protection workers, and mental health professionals all work together. This multi-disciplinary team (MDT) uses a child-centered approach to generate an efficient, comprehensive, and effective method of service delivery where the needs of the child always come first.
Referrals to the organization are provided from law enforcement and human service agencies, who turn to RBRC for best-standard protocols regarding child abuse treatment and prevention. Support for our program is evidenced by the continuous backing from all our partner agencies.
