History
 

The Rape and Abuse Crisis Center of Fargo-Moorhead (RACC), Inc. has been at the forefront of efforts to improve the lives of victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, and child sexual abuse since its inception in 1977 when two local agencies- WomenAbuse, serving battered women, and the Rape Crisis Center, serving victims of sexual violence- merged to provide comprehensive, accessible services to victims.  RACC is proudly one of the earliest violence intervention centers to be established in North Dakota and Minnesota and throughout its history has served over 80,000 victims.

In 1977 RACC served 52 victims of sexual assault and 73 battered women in Fargo. Today the organization provides crisis intervention, advocacy, counseling, and education to over 3,000 female and male victims and their family members each year throughout eastern North Dakota and west central Minnesota.

All services are free and confidential and offered on a non-discriminatory basis. We are dedicated to offering help, healing, and hope to those affected by violence and abuse and committed to our vision of safe homes and safe communities.
