New domestic violence shelter in Manitowoc County to start construction

MANITOWOC, WI (WTAQ) - Construction begins Friday on a new domestic violence shelter for Manitowoc County.

The Wisconsin Domestic Violence Center says its current 19-bed facility is often over capacity -- and its living rooms and library often have to be used as bedrooms.

The Manitowoc shelter had its largest average capacity on record in 2013.

Center officials say the new shelter will have more bed space, plus more room for various services and meetings. $1.8 million has been raised for the project, and another $100,000 is still being sought.

The new center is expected to be ready in about nine months.
