Western Kansas Child Advocacy mission is to heal the trauma of child abuse to children and families through prevention, support and services. The WKCAC has the VISION ”to ensure that every child has access to a child advocacy center in their community. The center eliminates the need for a child to be shuffled through police stations, doctors' offices and possibly courtrooms, thus sparing the child fear and trauma often associated with these experiences. They also provide a warm, child-friendly setting where children can be interviewed, supports the child and family through the judicial process, provides referrals to community resources, informs and educates families about the criminal justice process, keeps families updated on the status of their cases and reduces the need for multiple interviews.

The Western Kansas Child Advocacy Raised over$100,000 in the 100 women campaign. 100 women were asked to raise $1,000. Four of PlainJan's staff participated in the 100 women campaign in 2012: Jan Huck President, Ali Cline Operations Manager, Alexie Olds Office Manager, & Monique Miller Trade show Manager.
