Christine Rudolph woke up last week to an eviction notice taped on her front door.
Three days later, she and her 15-year-old daughter were forced to leave their home in Jefferson County.
“I can't even believe it, especially when we’re on a stay-at-home order,” Rudolph said, her voice breaking. “I'm just beside myself.”
St. Louis has temporarily halted evictions during the coronavirus outbreak, but in other parts of Missouri, landlords are still allowed to evict their tenants. Despite statewide orders to remain at home, some recently evicted residents are now living on the streets or in their cars, unsure how to stay safe in the midst of a pandemic.
