KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Kansas Citians have responded to the call to do their part to help prevent the spread of the coronavirus.
That response has led to profound changes, leaving our communities unsettled in what seemed like just hours.
As we continue to navigate the coronavirus' impacts, many are beginning to chart the course forward. When will businesses reopen and employees go back to work?
Is the way our community did things before the shutdown worth going back to, or is there a different - and brighter - future ahead?
Answering those questions will take time, hope and lots of understanding, and it’s why 41 Action News is launching The Rebound Kansas City.
Our effort is to help Kansas Citians play a role in moving our community forward.
The Rebound Kansas City will provide resources for those who have lost their job or seen their sources of income cut.
We’ve seen Kansas City step up to help those in need, and our effort aims to make sure those who need the help know where to find it and have access to it.
With students out of the classroom for weeks and parents working from home, the day-to-day challenges have taken a toll on many. Our reporting seeks to give people hope and resources to cope.
With great sacrifices come great expectations, and for those organizations and officials who are tasked with providing help to our community, it’s important the public knows what’s working and where we need to improve.
