MCSP Client Information
Are you an MCSP client? Here you can find information on how to get started on serving your community service hours.
In order to serve community service hours through MCSP, you should be court ordered or referred. If referred to another program, MCSP cannot monitor your hours. If you are an out of area defendant, MCSP can monitor your community service. You will need your court information when scheduling an intake session.
To begin serving court ordered community service hours through MCSP, you must make an appointment to meet with an MCSP representative. To make an appointment, you must contact MCSP at 816.960.6809. Phones are answered Monday through Friday from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM. If someone is not available to take your call, you may leave a message and it will be returned as soon as possible.
You must meet with an MCSP representative before beginning your community service hours. Community service hours performed prior to meeting with MCSP will not be credited to your case. Upon meeting with an MCSP representative, you will be assigned a worksite where your community service hours will be performed. Hours performed anywhere other than your assigned worksite will not be credited to your case.
A program fee is charged for each case that is court ordered to MCSP and varies by the number of ordered community service hours. As long as community service hours are completed in accordance with MCSP policy, no additional fee will be charged. You will be informed of the program fee amount upon scheduling your appointment. All payments must be exact cash or money order and debit or credit are accepted with an additional processing fee. The program fee is necessary to keep the program operational, as MCSP is a non-profit organization.
Things to bring to your appointment:
Stipulations vary by court and case, so please remember to bring your court order with you to your appointment. If you do not have your court order, please acquire a copy from the court prior to your appointment. Further details of your court ordered community service will be discussed during your appointment.
MCSP utilizes select non-profit organizations, called worksites, to fulfill court ordered community service hours. Each worksite receives court ordered community service workers on an ongoing basis. By utilizing the cost-free labor provided by community service workers, non-profit organizations reduce expenses and are allowed to provide additional assistance to Kansas City metropolitan communities as a result of that savings.
MCSP is very grateful to its worksites and works to maintain a lasting relationship with each.
