Mission Statement

The Kansas City Anti-Violence Project (KCAVP) provides dedicated services to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) youth and adults, throughout Missouri and Kansas, who have experienced trauma, violence, harassment or neglect. Through direct advocacy, professional training and community education, we work to prevent and respond to domestic violence, sexual violence and hate crimes.

Description

Kansas City Anti-Violence Project (KCAVP) is the only organization in Missouri, Kansas, Iowa, or Nebraska solely dedicated to providing services to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and questioning (LGBTQ) victims of domestic and sexual violence as well as bias crimes (also called hate crimes).

KCAVP was created in October 2002 in response to a murder-suicide that occurred in Kansas City. While members of the LGBTQ community were aware that the individuals involved were a gay couple, local media reported that the two men were roommates. After discussions about possible resources in the area for LGBTQ individuals experiencing domestic violence, it was discovered that no LGBTQ-specific resources existed to help those in the community. As a response, KCAVP was formed to to bridge the lack of services available to LGBTQ victims of violence and to educate both the LGBTQ community and the community at large about violence in the LGBTQ community.
