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:

Nationwide $400,000
Kroger $100,000
Honda $80,000
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.
