Fall Community Beneficiary:
MOCSA

The mission is very straightforward. MOCSA exists to improve the lives of those impacted by sexual assault and abuse and to prevent sexual violence in our community.

Why they work toward this mission daily is equally straightforward. Sexual violence is not something that only happens in other places – it happens right here, in Kansas City, every single day. And the impacts can be devastating, not only for the victims, but also for their friends and loved ones. Too often, it happens within a family or within a circle of friends. More than 80 percent of sexual violence is committed by someone the victim knows, not by a stranger.

Without support and help, the trauma of sexual violence can stay with victims for a lifetime. So they do everything they can to prevent these crimes from happening in the first place, and to offer support, healing, and hope when they do occur. They help victims become survivors.
