The nonprofit Safe In Harm's Way aims to connect resources to victims of domestic abuse.

For domestic abuse victims, the coronavirus pandemic has made their situation that much more difficult.

Now more isolated, sufferers are trapped at home with their abusers more than before.

This separation from others caused by the pandemic makes it unlikely that coworkers or friends will notice the signs of abuse and reach out to offer support. Caroline Markel Hammond talks about her organization's mission to address all types of abuse and shares her experience as a survivor.

When I host Up To Date each morning at 9 a.m., my aim is to engage the community in conversations about the Kansas City area’s challenges, hopes and opportunities. I try to ask the questions that listeners want answered about the day’s most pressing issues and provide a place for residents to engage directly with newsmakers. My email is steve@kcur.org.
Whether it’s something happening right now or something that happened 100 years ago, some stories don’t fit in the short few minutes of a newscast. As a podcast producer at KCUR, I help investigate questions and local curiosities in a way that brings listeners along for adventures with plot twists and thought-provoking ideas. Sometimes there isn’t an easy answer in the end – but my hope is that we all leave with a greater understanding of the city we live in. Reach me at mackenzie@kcur.org or find me on Twitter @_macmartin.
As Up To Date’s associate producer, I construct daily conversations that give our listeners context to the issues of our time. I strive to provide a platform that holds those in power accountable, while also spotlighting the voices of Kansas City’s creatives and visionaries that may otherwise go unheard. Email me at zach@kcur.org.
KCUR serves the Kansas City region with breaking news and powerful storytelling.
