Background Statement

Since 1975, the Metropolitan Organization to Counter Sexual Assault has been the only rape crisis center and the sole resource for the bi-state Kansas City metropolitan area that comprehensively deals with sexual violence and its impacts on people of all ages and backgrounds. While demand for our services is consistently high, the dedication of our Board of Directors, executive leadership, staff, volunteers, and supporters has allowed us to achieve unprecedented growth and reach record numbers of people in 2015 and 2016.

MOCSA was incorporated in 1975 after a number of years of coordinated work by survivors, law enforcement, criminal justice professionals, medical and mental health providers, advocates, and researchers. In 1983, MOCSA merged with the Sexual Abuse Treatment Network to form the child sexual abuse treatment program and serve sexually abused children and their loved ones, adult survivors of child sexual abuse and court-ordered offenders. In the 1990’s, formalized work with adolescent sex offenders began. In recent years, MOCSA has begun work with children experiencing sexual behavior problems.

Professional and community education has served both youth and adults for decades, with Project Aware, MOCSA’s prevention education program for children in pre-kindergarten through fifth grade, beginning in the early 1980’s. In the late 1990’s, MOCSA expanded its school-based prevention and education services, thanks to the support of Violence Against Women Act funding. This funding allowed us to expand our work throughout the Kansas City Metro area, reaching more people than ever before.

MOCSA services include:


  • The crisis line, available 24 hours per day, 365 days per year for those impacted by sexual violence to receive immediate person-to-person support.
  • Hospital and law enforcement advocacy, which provides in-person support for victims of sexual violence as they navigate medical and legal processes, also available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
  • Counseling for rape and sexual assault victims and their loved ones.
  • Counseling and case management for sexually abused children and their loved ones.
  • Counseling for adult survivors of child sexual abuse and their loved ones.
  • Rehabilitative counseling for juvenile and court ordered adult sex offenders.
  • Counseling for youth who have exhibited sexual behavior problems to overcome their own trauma and become healthy and successful adults.
  • Project Aware, MOCSA’s school-based sexual violence education and prevention programming for young children and the adults in their lives.
  • Programs such as Strength Clubs and Teen Exchange, and our new Youth-Led Prevention initiative, educating adolescents on healthy relationships, positive gender roles, and the leadership skills necessary to help create safe environments in their communities.
  • Specialized training to assist professionals, including police, medical personnel and therapists to improve treatment for victims.
  • Services are provided at outreach sites throughout the metro, through daytime and evening hours, and at no cost to victims of sexual violence, removing the most common barriers to service such as lack of transportation, financial duress, and scheduling conflicts.
  • Victim services as well as prevention, education and training activities have expanded throughout MOCSA’s 41-year history. In 2015, MOCSA directly reached more than 62,000 people in the metropolitan area.


Impact Statement

2015-16 Accomplishments: 


  1. MOCSA leveraged increased federal funding available through the Victims of Crime Act and private funding sources in order to expand our staff and office space. The physical expansion created 1,786 square feet of additional space for our advocacy and counseling departments and increased our staff by 14 full time equivalents in order to meet the increasing demand for services in the community.
  2. During the 2015-16 school year, MOCSA successfully piloted a Youth-Led Prevention Program at University Academy in Kansas City. Youth-Led Prevention is an education program utilizing an evidence-informed curriculum to train high school leaders in educating their peers about sexual violence, healthy relationships, and safe interventions to help prevent sexual assault.
  3. The Junior League of Kansas City Missouri selected to partner with MOCSA on the Stewards of Children Program (SOC). The program provides education on adults’ roles and responsibilities to help keep children safe from sexual abuse. The Junior League selected SOC as one of their signature programs and provided funds to purchase needed books and materials for the program, as well as host training and market the program with MOCSA.


Goals for 2016 and 2017:


  1. Change social and cultural norms to understand and prevent sexual violence in our community through education, outreach, and advocacy.
  2. Utilize evidence-based treatment methods to reduce trauma symptoms and increase healthy coping skills for victims of sexual violence receiving counseling services.
  3. Provide crisis line and advocacy 24 hours per day, 365 days per year to improve the lives of those impacted by sexual abuse and assault.
  4. Work within community systems to enhance the response to survivors of sexual abuse and assault.

CEO/Executive Director/Board Chair Statement

Dear Friends of MOCSA,

Each day at MOCSA we see firsthand the impact sexual violence has on our community. From the survivors we support in local emergency rooms when they go to receive medical treatment following a sexual assault, to the calls for support and guidance we receive on our crisis-line, to the child victims, caregivers and adult survivors of abuse coming to participate in counseling, we witness the dire problem of sexual assault and abuse that occurs every day in our community.

Despite this, I see tremendous courage and enormous hope. More survivors than ever are coming forward and seeking services. Survivors are hearing our collective message that they will be believed and they are not at fault for the abused inflicted upon them.

Most of all, I am hopeful because I see our community changing its response to survivors and important conversations taking place. I am encouraged by the resounding support we receive from the community. The business community, local and national foundations, governmental agencies, and the generosity of individuals who give their time and resources remind me that we are deeply fortunate to be in a community where so many people share our vision of a community free of sexual violence.

Thanks to you, our friends and supporters, over 80 percent of the children who receive counseling services show a decrease in symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder. Because of the generosity of the community, over 17,000 hours of service were provided for survivors receiving advocacy services in the first half of 2016 alone. In the past ten months, more than 50,000 people have participated in MOCSA’s education services.

A special thanks is also in order for the more than 400 volunteers that sacrifice so much in pursuit of MOCSA’s mission, without whom so many of our services would not be possible.

I look forward to even stronger partnerships with the entire community in the year ahead. I am more hopeful than ever that we can end sexual violence in our community.

With deep gratitude,

Julie Donelon, MSW

President and CEO



MOCSA provides therapy services to help victims from early childhood through elder adulthood and their loved ones heal from sexual abuse or assault. Individual and group counseling services are offered to children, adolescents and adult victims of sexual abuse and assault, and their loved ones. MOCSA also provides court ordered offender treatment at an off-site location for adjudicated adolescents and adults referred by the criminal justice system. We have recently expanded counseling services offered to youth experiencing sexual behavior problems.

Evidence-based therapies such as Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) and Trauma Focused – Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), along with play, art and sensory-based therapy, are utilized. Counseling and support programs promote healing from sexual abuse and assault and help to break the cycle of abuse, which is often intergenerational. Outreach sites throughout the Kansas City Metro area also help to alleviate barriers to services.

Short-Term Success

Program goals are:

  1. MOCSA counseling treatment services will reach 1,250 people in 2016.
  2. 75% of youth receiving treatment will experience a reduction in PTSD symptoms according to the UCLA-PTSD Index after five sessions; 80% of youth will show a decrease in symptoms after fifteen sessions.
  3. 80% of adult victims of childhood sexual abuse and adult victims of sexual assault will maintain or improve functioning in two of these four primary areas: reduced trauma and distress symptoms; improved coping and stress management skills; enhanced interpersonal relationships and improved social roles.
  4. 95% of clients surveyed will report that MOCSA gave them the help they need.

Long-Term Success

At MOCSA, recovery is defined as a process of change that is supported by addressing trauma. Clients work to improve their own health and wellness and to live a meaningful life while striving to achieve their own potential. For children who receive counseling, long-term success is defined by the formation of healthy families that have healed from the negative effects of child sexual abuse and will take steps to prevent future abuse. For adults who have experienced sexual abuse and assault, the long term goal is to improve emotional and physical health of the survivors and enable them to participate in meaningful adult relationships. For the adolescent and adult sex offenders the goal is to eliminate future offender behaviors.

Many MOCSA therapists have been certified or rostered in various treatment modalities:

  • One therapist rostered in Missouri for TF-CBT
  • Four therapists rostered nationally for TF-CBT
  • Eleven therapists certified in EMDR
  • One therapist certified as an EMDR consultant, permitting her to provide training in EMDR to other therapists on staff
  • Five therapists registered in Play Therapy
  • One therapist registered as a Play Therapy supervisor

Program Success Monitored By

The University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) PTSD Reaction Index survey tool is used to evaluate the progress of children. Used throughout the United States, this tool measures the severity of PTSD symptoms, including intrusive recollections, avoidance and anxiety. Evaluations are administered upon intake, giving the clinician a baseline measurement of symptoms that indicate the effects of the trauma. Subsequent administrations occur at the fifth session, 15th session and again upon completion of treatment. Successful treatment is indicated by improvement of PTSD symptoms experienced.

The Client Domains of Functioning (CDF) survey is also utilized for adults undergoing counseling at MOCSA. The CDF measures domains of functioning in four areas: trauma and distress symptoms, stress management, interpersonal relationships, and social roles.

In addition to the UCLA PTSD Reaction Index survey and the CDF, clients are encouraged to complete Client Satisfaction Surveys twice a year in the months of April and October. The Client Satisfaction Surveys also use a five-point scale from “strongly disagree” to “strongly agree,” and is comprised of seven questions. Qualitative follow-up questions are also asked to give clients the opportunity to give specific suggestions for improvement to our services.


Examples of Program Success

In 2015, 1,198 people received counseling, including:

  • 359 child victims and 188 of their loved ones
  • 245 sexual assault victims and their significant others
  • 222 adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse and their significant others
  • 79 adults and 30 adolescents with illegal sexual behaviors, and 21 of their parents or guardians
  • 176 clients reported having a disability.
  • Outcomes in 2015 included 95% of clients surveyed reported they are getting the help they need at MOCSA
  • 80% of adult counseling clients in 2015 showed improved functioning in one of the four areas, social roles, interpersonal relationships, coping skills and trauma symptoms measured by the Client Domains of Functioning survey.
  • 90% of children saw a decrease in PTSD symptoms after their final counseling session.
  • In 2015, 88% of non-offending parents were able to maintain or improve their ability to support their child’s treatment and create a safe environment.



Victims of sexual violence are in need of confidential, safe and welcoming in-person and phone-based services. Research has shown that having an appropriate first response not only increases the likelihood that a victim receives services, but also decreases psychological trauma. MOCSA’s Advocacy Program offers a 24-hour crisis line, face-to-face advocacy with survivors, and systems-based advocacy with community partners, all designed to ensure a victim-centered response. The crisis line is answered 24 hours a day allowing for anonymity and assistance with all issues related to sexual violence any time of day or night. Advocates are available 24 hours per day, 365 days per year to provide personal support to survivors. Victims in emergency rooms have access to a personal MOCSA advocate during the sexual assault forensic exam and other medical processes. Advocates are also available to survivors during law enforcement and legal processes, including interviews with law enforcement and court proceedings.

A significant portion of advocacy services, both through the crisis line and face-to-face at area hospitals and law enforcement agencies, are performed by highly trained and dedicated MOCSA volunteers.

Finally, systems-based advocacy is conducted with community partners, including law enforcement, governmental agencies, elected bodies, and non-profit organizations, in order to improve the response to survivors and make systemic changes to help prevent sexual violence.

Short-Term Success

Program goals are that:

  1. 90% of crisis line callers and those receiving face-to-face advocacy services will report the services they received were helpful.
  2. 90% of service participants will be satisfied with the service provided by crisis line advocates.
  3. 100% of crisis line callers and those requesting in-person advocacy will receive the personal support they need. MOCSA will respond to 100% of crisis line calls and face-to-face advocacy requests.

Long-Term Success

Long-term success means that sexual violence is both prevented in our community through systemic legal and cultural changes, and that survivors of sexual violence receive the personal support they need to overcome their trauma, navigate the criminal justice system, and improve their lives.

MOCSA’s aim with advocacy services is also to build and strengthen community relationships, and to collaborate with our partners in order to leverage greater prevention efforts and extend help to more people in our community who need it.


Program Success Monitored By

Effectiveness of our phone-based and face-to-face advocacy services are evaluated by client responses to services received by an advocate in person or through the crisis line. At the close of a service the advocate asks if the service they received was helpful to them and met their needs. This information is then recorded into MOCSA’s secure, confidential electronic data management system.

Quality of services is also evaluated through semi-annual client satisfaction surveys. The survey asks both qualitative and quantitative questions to assess the survivor’s perception of MOCSA’s services. Surveys are also administered to collaborative partners to assess the performance of MOCSA advocates providing services to victims and their loved ones during forensic exams or interviews with law enforcement.

Feedback from partners as we move to make systemic changes through the legal system and other mechanisms is also vital to advocating for an end to sexual violence in our community.


Examples of Program Success

In 2015, the crisis line took 3,643 calls, while hospital advocacy services helped 713 people, and 462 victims received criminal justice advocacy. Of these clients, 160 reported having a disability.

Outcomes reported in 2015 and 2016 include:

  • In 2015, 98.6% of clients using the crisis line and other advocacy services reported that the services they received were helpful. In the first nine months of 2016, this number is 99.5%.
  • In 2015, 94% of crisis line callers agreed with the statement “I liked the way I was helped when I first called MOCSA.” In the first nine months of 2016, this number is 95%.



This program provides public awareness, prevention and education regarding sexual violence through programs addressing children, youth and adults. These include:

  • Project Aware: MOCSA's highly regarded child sexual abuse education program for youth in preschool through fifth grade, and Stewards of Children, the adult component, emphasizing the adult’s role in keeping children safe through preventing abuse;
  • Green Dot: An evidence-based program for middle school youth built on intervention techniques to create an environment where bullying, dating violence and harassment are not part of school culture;
  • Teen Exchange: MOCSA's multi-session prevention education program for teens;
  • Youth-Led Prevention: A new program that trains high schoolers through an evidence-based curriculum to educate their peers on consent, dating violence, and healthy relationships;
  • Strength Clubs: Multi-session prevention and mobilization program for youth that focus on topics such as gender roles, healthy relationships, overcoming media stereotypes, and intervention techniques; and
  • Community and Professional Education: Presentations and trainings for work places, faith-based organizations, colleges/universities and community groups.

Program Budget $887,432.00
Category Crime & Legal, General/Other Sexual Assault Prevention
Population Served K-12 (5-19 years), Adults,
Short-Term Success

  1. 90% of young children who participate in Project Aware will leave with an understanding that sexual abuse is not the victim’s fault.
  2. 80% of students who participate in Teen Exchange, Youth-Led Prevention, or Strength Club programming will identify that they know at least one thing they can do to prevent or reduce the risk of sexual assault.
  3. 100% of adults participating in Stewards of Children will recognize their own responsibility in keeping children safe from abuse.

Long-Term Success

Long-term success is realized through the changing of social and cultural norms that increase understanding of sexual violence, and continuously improving our education and outreach activities to prevent it from happening in the first place.

Program Success Monitored By

Success of the program is defined by an increased knowledge as measured by pre-test to post-test responses. For Project Aware, non-reading student are evaluated by a show of hands in response to facilitator questions. The Education and Outreach team administers the evaluation tools, and continuously monitor results to improve service delivery.

We also measure success through number of people we are able to reach and the expansion of our education and outreach footprint. While the need for prevention education services consistently outpaces our capacity to deliver them, each of the past several years has brought MOCSA volunteers and educators into more school districts, outreach sites, and community events.


Examples of Program Success

In 2015, MOCSA reached more than 59,000 people through education and outreach. MOCSA educators work in more than 31 school districts, and provided outreach presentations and events to 59,365 people throughout the seven-county metro area:

  • 28,158 people attended school-based sexual abuse prevention and awareness presentations;
  • 16,880 students, ages 4-11, and 1,468 adults received Project Aware, MOCSA’s child sexual abuse prevention program
  • 1,027 students participated in Green Dot Middle School Program, which prevents violence through bystander engagement
  • 4,110 adults attended volunteer training or community education programs;
  • 1,831 police officers, nurses, teachers, clergy, and social service providers received professional training;
  • 4,395 adults and 2,553 youth were reached through displays, meetings, and outreach events.

Program results indicate that, 98% of professionals surveyed identified one thing they can do to prevent or reduce the risk of sexual violence; and 99% of Project Aware participants leave with an understanding that sexual abuse is not a child’s fault.
