About Us

The mission of the Abused Adult Resource Center is to assist victims of domestic violence and sexual assault by establishing and maintaining a program which will provide temporary shelter, crisis intervention, prevention, education, support and hope as a vision to eliminate violence.

The Abused Adult Resource Center (AARC) has been helping survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault for more than 30 years. Serving south central North Dakota, we provide emergency support, crisis intervention, temporary shelter, food, counseling, and advocacy to survivors of domestic violence, domestic assault, and human trafficking.

Our goal is to help our clients and their families find hope through a life free from abuse. We also enjoying working with our communities to create an awareness and sensitivity to domestic violence and sexual assault issues, establishing programs that aim to break the cycle of abuse.
