Summer is here and for some domestic violence shelters in Central Ohio, that means an increase in people seeking services. The CHOICES domestic violence shelter just opened a new facility in January, growing from 50 beds to 120. Now the shelter is completely full with a waitlist of more than 40 households says director Sue Villilo. Those on the waitlist are not in crisis, she notes.
