Women's Protective Services unveils newly remodeled safe house

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Women's Protective Services has a newly remodeled safe house.

The safe house unveiled Friday is the first of six built by home builders Kevin Reed and Jordan Wheatley.

Kevin and Jordan along with 75 donors have been working for months to revamp the residential facility - all without compensation.

The executive director for Women's Protective Services, Fritzi Cates, said she thought it was important for families staying in the facility to have a peaceful, comforting and beautiful place to come.

"When families have to leave in the middle of the night - running from their homes to get safe - we want them to have a beautiful and serene place to come and stay."

In their 13-year history, the facility has been home to over 50,000 survivors of domestic violence.
