Kansas City Residents' Satisfaction | Jackson County's 'Pro Bonos'
What we can learn from Kansas City's residential satisfaction survey, and why a group of Jackson County lawyers were nationally recognized for their work.
Segment 1, beginning at 0:59: The numbers may not be statistically significant, but a trend was clear in the most recent resident satisfaction survey conducted for Kansas City, Missouri.
Answering questions in more than a dozen categories, there was a slight downtick in how respondents rate Kansas City as a place to live and raise children. Conversely, the services that residents receive for their tax dollars are being viewed more favorably. We got a rundown of the more significant findings from the 2020-2021 Resident Satisfaction Survey.
Segment 2, beginning at 27:04: Family law can be an emotional roller coaster for everyone involved, including the attorneys. One local group of lawyers — who offer their work for free — is now being nationally recognized for their commitment to these kinds of cases.
The Jackson County Pro Bono Attorneys have won the 2021 Impact of the Year Award from the National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges. Two of the group's attorneys explain the work they do and why it is so valuable.
