PARTNERSHIPS

One important result of implementing the PSAP in the schools has been the decrease in the amount of time it takes a child to tell someone about a sexually abusive situation.

Since the inception of the PSAP and CAC, we have had great success with local, county, and state agencies supporting the program and have had the opportunity to implement prevention programs in civic and local churches due to the success of the program in the schools. Fiscal support has come from the Federal and State budgets as well as community foundations to provide education and direct services to over 200,000 children in our area.

Agencies that have purchased the program include:

  • Child Advocacy Centers
  • Mental Health Centers
  • Law Enforcement Agencies
  • School Districts
  • State Attorney's Offices

Additional organizations have purchased the program for training including:

  • Child Care providers
  • School staff
  • Healthcare
  • Law Enforcement
  • Headstart staff
  • Early Education Centers for children with disabilities
  • Big Brothers/Big Sisters
  • Boy and Girl Scouts

In 1995, the State and Mental Health Retardation Services recognized us for having a comprehensive and successful program in Kansas that has strong measurable outcomes.

Horizons Mental Health Center is accredited by the National Children's Advocacy Center, listed as Horizons Child Advocacy Center, a member of the Child Advocacy Centers of Kansas.

"We have had the opportunity to start programs in local churches ...
due to the success of the programs in the schools."
