2017 marks The Care Center’s 45th year!
We are proud to represent the legacy of advocacy and support for victims and survivors of sexual trauma and abuse. As the first rape crisis center in the state of Kansas, and one of the first three in the nation, we carry on the important work of those who came before us.
In Douglas, Franklin, and Jefferson Counties, we are committed to providing the highest quality of care to people of all ages and genders. The Care Center promises to give our communities the highest standard of care for survivors and the most innovative prevention strategies available.
Local, state and federal dollars have allowed us to expand and strengthen our services but we need your donation to continue this legacy of care. Every donation strengthens the foundation of the work we do and helps to ensure that every call is answered.
The Care Center provides new free of charge clothing to victim/survivors at the hospital when it is required that their clothes be confiscated for evidence. All items must be new!
- Cotton underwear (ALL sizes including plus sizes)
- Cotton t-shirts and sweatshirts (all sizes)
- Cotton sweatpants and cotton shorts (all sizes)
We also accept donations of old and used cell phones. Cell phones can be in any shape, with or without accessories. Cell phones in good shape will be used as emergency 911 phones for victim-survivors and unusable phones will be recycled through our agency. Give us your old phone OR start a cell phone drive at your work or group place. Just bring them into our office or call us about more information at 785-843-8985.
