The average family we serve consists of a mother and two children. It costs an average of $11,000 a month to shelter and provide support services to each Turning Point family.

Gifts will be used to support Turning Point’s services to victims of domestic violence by providing safety, shelter, guidance and advocacy.  For additional information contact Jenise Lefevre, at (740) 382-8988 or email
