Turning Point's Holiday Giving    Program

Everyone deserves a holiday season filled with peace, however, the holidays can be a difficult time for Turning Point's clients. With the help of loyal and generous donors, Turning Point has been providing holiday help since 1986 for families in our services that have fled abusive situations. Last year, we were able to provide help for 50 families, including 105 children.

Due to the circumstances surrounding the pandemic virus, we are continuing to make efforts in order to maintain safety.


Check out the ways below to help make a difference this holiday season!

Monetary gifts to our Holiday Giving Program will allow us to respond to families' critical and urgent needs, as they are establishing themselves after fleeing abusive situations. For additional information contact Paula Burnside 740-382-8988 or email
