County Executive to Present Checks
to Domestic Violence Shelters

August 9, 2011 (KANSAS CITY, MO) – Jackson County Executive Mike Sanders will present checks to three local domestic violence shelters during a special presentation on Wednesday, August 10 at 1:00 p.m. 

The presentation will take place at New House.

New House, along with the Rose Brooks Center and Hope House will each receive a check in the amount of $26,350. Each shelter received an earlier allocation this year of $33,333 from the fund that the Jackson County Board of Domestic Violence Shelters administers. 

The Jackson County Domestic Violence Fund is generated through a combined state and county fee of $10 on all marriage licenses issued in the county and a $2 fee on all civil case filings in the county circuit court.
