KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Advocates like Kaitlin Dempsey are the first point of contact that residents have with Newhouse, Kansas City’s first domestic violence shelter.
As a result of the fallout from COVID-19, the shelter’s largest fundraiser, ‘New Day Luncheon’, is now virtual.
Given the situation that caused the event to go online – which includes stay-at-home orders throughout the metro – advocates said it’s even more important they still raise that money.
