Crisis Services

24-Hour Crisis Line

Trained MOCSA staff and volunteers answer the 24-hour anonymous hotline.  The line is open to anyone who has questions or issues related to sexual violence. Crisis line advocates are trained to provide emotional support, crisis intervention, information, referrals, and problem-solving to victims of sexual violence as well as their friends and family members.   MOCSA’s crisis line and advocacy services are completely confidential and independent from law enforcement or any other partners.

Hospital Advocacy

MOCSA advocates are contacted by hospital personnel when a victim arrives at an area emergency department for a sexual assault forensic exam. They will show up 24-hours a day to provide support, resources, and information to victims during and after the exam.

Police and Court Advocacy

It is always a survivor’s right to choose whether to report a sexual assault. MOCSA advocates are available to accompany victims to file initial police reports, to provide support during detective interviews, and throughout the court process.  

Education in Schools

Sexual abuse and violence is an issue that many young people will face, regardless of race, ethnicity or economic background. MOCSA’s education presenters provide age-appropriate programs for children in elementary, middle, and high schools. We currently work in more than 30 school districts in the Kansas City metro area, on both sides of the state line.

MOCSA’s presentations utilize a variety of teaching methods, including group discussion, lecture, question and answer sessions, and activities designed to enhance learning and behavior chance. Our free-of-charge presentations are available in both English and Spanish.
