The City Council of Kansas City Missouri recently took action to protect victims of domestic violence and stalking. The Council approved a new city ordinance that prevents landlords from evicting tenants or their dependents who are victims of domestic abuse or stalking. The ordinance also allows renters who face stalking or violence to break their leases without any penalty. We at Raineth Housing have always followed these same standards. Not because we had to, but because it’s the right thing to do.
If you need to leave a violent situation, we encourage you to visit our Local Resources section, where we list domestic violence shelters that provide a safe, healing environment for women and children.
