Hilltop Community Services CEO Mike Stahl looks at one of the client rooms on the third floor of the Latimer House, a refuge for victims of domestic violence. Hilltop is looking to sell the Victorian house and move to a more accessible and larger place.

But the Latimer House program has outgrown the three-story home where it resides, and Hilltop Community Resources is now searching for a new facility that will be able to shelter more people and offer more privacy.
