Wichita Coalition for Child Abuse Prevention
The Wichita Coalition for Child Abuse Prevention (WCCAP), formerly known as the Wichita Child Abuse Fatalities Community Response Team, is a collective impact group with more than 116 representatives from 65 organizations.

WCCAP formed to create and carry out prevention initiatives as a community response to the cluster of eight child abuse fatalities in Wichita that were identified by the Wichita Eagle in 2008. Its mission is to empower organizations in Wichita to create an effective system to prevent child abuse and neglect.

KCSL is the lead agency as the state chapter for Prevent Child Abuse America. Wichita State University serves as the backbone organization. Additional leadership roles have been assumed over the years by the Wichita Children’s Home; Wesley Hospital; Via Christi Hospital; Department for Children and Families; Rainbows United; Child Advocacy Center of Sedgwick County; Junior League Wichita; Child Start; Wichita Police Department; and a community volunteer. This work is funded by Kansas Children’s Cabinet and Trust Fund. For more information, email us or call 877-530-5275 ext. 1335.
