Turning Point - Delaware County Domestic Violence Shelter
The BIA of Central Ohio’s Professional Women in Building Council has committed to helping the local Delaware County Domestic Violence Shelter become a safe place for so many of our local residents. We are looking for donation items to help this project be a huge success!
Donating items that can be used in the building of the shelter will go a long way.
Items such as:
Power Lift Gate at Main Entrance
Cabinets and Countertops
Paving and resurfacing
Paint and re-lamp existing outdoor pole lights
Playground surfaces and equipment
New basketball hoop & backboards
In a recent community survey, domestic violence was cited as one of the most pressing needs to be addressed in Delaware County. With support from the United Way of Delaware County, Turning Point is working to raise funds to address this need and build a second domestic violence shelter in Delaware at 500 North Liberty Street. Turning Point’s current shelter in Marion has been serving a six-county service area of domestic violence victims for 30 years, including Delaware, Marion, Crawford, Morrow, Union and Wyandot Counties. The current shelter in Marion is the geographical center of the service area but with the growth in population in Delaware County, the second shelter is needed.
Turning Point has embarked upon a $3.2 million campaign and has raised $1.7 million to date. Lead corporate/foundation gifts committed so far include:
White Castle $50,000
Preferred Wireless LLC $25,000
Harry C. Moores $15,000
Many individuals, church groups, government agencies and rotaries have also contributed, including a $387,000 donation from the United Way of Delaware County’s Women’s Leadership Network and a $100,000 gift from the Delaware/Morrow Mental Health & Recovery Services Board.
