Safe Environment Program

The Diocese of Kansas City-St. Joseph is committed to combating sexual abuse in the Church.  If you are a victim of sexual abuse, or if you observe or suspect sexual abuse:

1. Call the Missouri Child Abuse Hotline at   1-800-392-3738 (if the victim is currently under the age of 18), and

2. Contact your local law enforcement agency or call 911, and  

3. After reporting to these civil and law enforcement authorities, report suspected sexual abuse of a minor or vulnerable adult to the Diocesan Ombudsman, Joe Crayon, at 816-812-2500 or, if the abuse involves a priest, deacon, employee, or volunteer of the Diocese of Kansas City-St. Joseph.

The Diocese has a sincere commitment to providing care and healing resources to victims of sexual abuse and their families.  Please contact Whitney True-Francis, the Victim Assistance Coordinator, at 816-392-0011 or for more information.  The complete Safe Environment Program Policy is available on the Diocesan website in the "Policies" portion of the Office of Child and Youth Protection (OCYP) section at
