Metropolitan Organization to Counter Sexual Assault (MOCSA)

Program Summary:
Comprehensive Sexual Violence Prevention in Jackson County is an expansion program that builds on MOCSA’s success with COMBAT in previous years. This program uses a multi-level public health model to prevent sexual assault, child sexual abuse and rape, through two components. 

First, MOCSA’s highly successful Youth with Problematic Sexual Behaviors (YPSB) component is an Indicated/Intensive Individualized/Tertiary Prevention effort targeting youth ages 6- to 14-years-old and their families/caregivers. This provides children and their caregivers the skills and support needed to reduce the youth’s risk of future acts of sexual violence, strengthen protective factors and safeguard against illegal or inappropriate sexual behavior. 

Second, in 2020 MOCSA launched the Kansas City, Missouri Sexual Violence Prevention Coalition (KCMO-SVP), which is a new, Universal/Primary Prevention Component to reduce and prevent sexual assault in the area. The purpose of this component is to implement community-level changes that address the common risk and protective factors of sexual violence and other forms of violence. 

Together, the purpose of this exciting two-pronged program is to prevent sexual violence through both Primary and Tertiary prevention levels and make Jackson County a safer place to live. These two components, combined with MOCSA’s successful Secondary Prevention work in Jackson County schools, provide an ideal, comprehensive public health approach to addressing sexual assault and sexual abuse in the community.
