For Immediate Release
April 27, 2023
In acknowledgement of National Crime Victims Rights Week, victims of violent crime in Kansas City, service agencies invested in helping those victims and many from the Jackson County Prosecutor's Office will gather Friday about 11:15 am at Greater Metropolitan Church of Christ, 3735 Wabash Avenue. Besides the speakers, our office is helping plant new gardens at the church, including a new dogwood tree as a testament to life.
Among the speakers will be Jackson County Prosecutor Jean Peters Baker, a crime victim and a vendor who works with the Jackson County Prosecutor's Office's Caring for Crime Survivor's Program, which responds to crime victims and helps with hardships inflicted on the crime victim, including repairs to doors and windows. Greater Metropolitan plays a crucial role in the prosecutor's office efforts to find services for every shooting victim or their family.
Greater Metropolitan church houses Greater Impact KC, which serves as the Midtown Strivin' Hub, funded by Jackson County COMBAT. The hub helps victims referred to them by the prosecutor's office and Partners for Peace, a broad colaition of law enforcement and community agencies dedicated to violence reduction.
