Rapid City Family Project (RCFP)

The goal of the Rapid City Family Project (RCFP) is to work closely with community members to create a program that reduces adverse childhood experiences (ACEs), including child abuse, exposure to domestic violence, exposure to community violence and other upsetting or traumatic experiences.

The project is community-led, which means members of the Rapid City area community will play an active role in developing the program and making decisions about how we evaluate the program.

The project, which is funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, is a collaboration among the University of Nebraska–Lincoln’s Interpersonal Violence Research Laboratory and several agencies and organizations in Rapid City, including UNL personnel based in Rapid City, Children’s Home Society, Working Against Violence Inc. and others.
