For nearly four decades, CHOICES for Victims of Domestic Violence (CHOICES) has been providing a safe, secure shelter for victims of domestic violence in central Ohio. Regrettably, the demand for sheltering of victims of domestic abuse in Columbus and the surrounding areas has increased, and CHOICES’ resources have been stretched thin. Meeting this increasing need, while ensuring the safety of victims in a respectful, secure manner, requires an innovative approach to domestic violence sheltering. That’s why we are launching our community’s campaign to build a new shelter for victims of domestic violence and their families.
