DODGE CITY, Kan. (AP) -- A southwestern Kansas shelter for victims of domestic and sexual violence has reopened after months of repairs.

The Crisis Center of Dodge City was forced to close its shelter when the summer heat wave caused the air conditioning unit to malfunction. The staff took the opportunity to also do repairs and deep cleaning. The safe house reopened Monday.

The Dodge City shelter is the only safe house of its kind in the area. Other crisis programs in Great Bend, Liberal and Garden City stepped in to provide services while the Dodge City facility was closed.

The Crisis Center of Dodge City provides free advocacy services to abuse victims in Ford, Hodgeman, Clark, Meade and Gray counties. Its services and safe houses are available 24 hours a day.
