SALT LAKE CITY -- Victims of domestic abuse will soon have a new safe haven in Salt Lake City.

On Wednesday, Gov. Jon Huntsman Jr. and Sen. Orrin Hatch joined YWCA leaders to break ground on a new shelter at 322 E. 300 South.

The shelter will serve women and kids who have had to leave their homes because of abuse.

Some of those victims attended the ceremony. The YWCA raised nearly $20 million for the project, which includes two new buildings.
