A new domestic violence shelter opened in West Charlotte Thursday.
"It's amazing, it's going to give victims an opportunity to feel like they are staying at home," said Dr. Lizzette Torres, a domestic violence survivor.
The new 41-thousand square foot building is a dream come true for residential director Kelly Coyne. The 80-bed facility is a huge upgrade from the cramped 29-bed shelter the city relied on for 33 years.
"It's a space where we can really work on providing clients with that hope and starting them on their path to healing," said Coyne.
The shelter is designed to be extra bright and spacious and comes complete with a dining hall, workout room, courtyard, playground and apartment-style suites.
"When I look out and see this place, I see light, I see hope and I see opportunity," said one woman.
The building, which is located on West Boulevard, is equipped with extra security features.
Families will be able to stay at the shelter for up to a year depending on their needs.
