COMBAT-Supported Sexual Assault Prevention Programs
MOCSA Comprehensive Sexual Violence Prevention
Comprehensive Sexual Violence Prevention in Jackson County represents a rare, highly effective project, which is the only one of its kind in Jackson County. This project will continue and expand upon MOCSA's success with COMBAT in previous years and fulfills county compliance with a new Missouri law passed in 2020. The purpose of this program is to prevent sexual violence using a multi-level public health model to stop sexual assault, child sexual abuse and rape.
This project builds on MOCSA's success with COMBAT Prevention efforts in the past and provides an ideal, comprehensive public health approach to addressing sexual assault and sexual abuse in our community. Collectively, this project will reach an estimated total of 5,115 people in Jackson County in 2023, using approaches that decrease violence in our region now and sustain that improved safety over time.
