Sexual Abuse

If you or someone you know has been sexually assaulted recently or is dealing with the long-term effects of sexual abuse, there are many helpful resources available throughout the Kansas City area, including JCCC.

We hope the links below will provide some helpful information, but they are not intended to take the place of discussing your concerns with a counselor.

MOCSA
If you or someone you know is the victim of sexual violence, call the MOCSA (Metropolitan Organization to Counter Sexual Assault) 24-hour crisis line for help. In Kansas, the number is 913-642-0233. In Missouri, call 816-531-0233. You can also call the National Sexual Assault Hotline at 1-800-656-4673 and you will be connected to a local rape crisis program in your area code.

MOCSA offers therapy, support and advocacy for victims of rape and sexual assault, for sexually abused children and families, for adult survivors of child sexual abuse and for others affected by sexual violence.

Advocates will accompany victims of sexual assault to emergency rooms to provide support during forensic evidence exams. They'll also accompany victims to file police reports and to police interviews and legal hearings or trials.

RAINN
The Rape, Abuse and Incest National Network is the nation's largest anti-sexual assault organization. The organization's National Sexual Assault Online Hotline provides live, secure, anonymous crisis support for victims of sexual assault, their friends and families over RAINN's website. The Online Hotline is free of charge and is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

You can read about the types of sexual assault on the RAINN site.
