A Lowndes County organization that helps victims of sexual assault officially opened its new building Tuesday.

Valdosta and Remerton city leaders and members of The Haven cut the ribbon on The Haven's new building in Remerton Tuesday morning.

The facility will replace the old one, which The Haven's Executive Director, Michelle Gartman, said they have outgrown. "This new facility expands that and expands our services. We had limited interview space, we had limited exam room space, we had limited office space. So, it's able to allow us to grow and serve victims better," Gartman explained.
