Blue text on a tan background that reads a place for us. A campaign for MOCSA's new home - told by survivors.

MOCSA’s Capital Campaign

In 2025, MOCSA will relocate to a new office. This new home will provide us with more space to continue serving our community, while also offering an accessible, survivor-centric, and trauma-informed space. 

The demand for MOCSA’s services has risen dramatically in the past 10 years with a 49% increase in advocacy services, 66% increase in counseling clients and 37% in education and prevention services. In 2023, MOCSA served over 70,000 individuals across our programs.

In response to these increases, our staff has grown from 40 to nearly 100 individuals since 2014—and all in the same suite at Penn Tower. We’ve outgrown our offices and as the sole rape crisis center for this region, the size of our current space limits our ability to meet the growing demand for services.

MOCSA’s new home will more than triple our physical capacity and will be Kansas City’s first space developed specifically for survivors of sexual violence. It will serve as a monument and a space to honor survivors, a symbol of the unique support that Kansas City has provided to survivors for nearly 50 years, through MOCSA’s national and regional leadership.

Map of MOCSA's six county service area in the Kansas City Metropolitan area including the following counties: Wyandotte, Platte, Clay, Jackson, Johnson and Cass.

Since 1975, MOCSA has been a place for survivors and our mission and vision have been clear:

To improve the lives of those impacted by sexual abuse and assault and to prevent sexual violence in our community. Together we can create a community free from sexual abuse and assault.

As the only rape crisis center serving the six-county metro area, MOCSA has been a place where more than 60,000 individuals receive advocacy, counseling, prevention, and education services each year. All completely free of charge.

MOCSA has provided effective, impactful support to survivors for the last 50 years. Your partnership will strengthen our impact over the next 50 years by:

  • Ensuring survivors can access the care they need to heal
  • Creating permanent community space for survivors
  • Expanding our prevention work throughout the six-county metro area we serve
  • Providing over 39,000 square feet for current services and future expansions
  • Supporting our team in the difficult work they do every day
