Kansas City is an excellent place to live, with low housing costs, good schools, and many outdoor recreational opportunities. However, similar to many large cities, there is an underlying problem of family and domestic violence. In 2009, over 37,000 domestic violence calls were made in Missouri, a large percentage of which were in Kansas City alone. As a result, nearly 44,000 protective orders were issued by state or local authorities. Fortunately, the state has recognized the severity of these issues that face Missouri families and has implemented programs to address the problem.2
