ST. LOUIS ( -- A new facility in south St. Louis is joining the fight against domestic violence. Harrison's Referral Services opened its doors for the first time Wednesday on Chippewa Street, providing a number of services including helping women and children get places in domestic violence shelters. 

"I'm just so excited that we are a part of fighting sexual assault and domestic violence here in St. Louis," said founder and CEO Lizzie Harrison. "There are so many other domestic violence organizations out here but we're the new kid on the block."
