Turning Point serves domestic violence victims and their families in Crawford, Delaware, Marion, Morrow, Union and Wyandot Counties.
“Turning Point has the social responsibility to respond to the needs of domestic violence victims…”
Picnic on the Porch is Turning Points annual open house. It is the only day every year that the shelter is open to anyone who would like to stop by for some picnic fare (hamburgers, hot dogs, macaroni salad, potato salad, etc.) It is an opportunity to learn more about the issue of domestic violence with the ultimate goal of breaking the cycle. Visitors can tour the shelter, and are free to ask any staff/board members questions about programs and services. They also have a staff dessert competition: try many desserts and make a donation to your favorite one! This year’s event is on Friday, October 5 from 11 am to 1 pm at 330 Barks Rd. W, Marion.
They need some volunteer help getting ready for this annual event during the month of September. Examples of tasks are: cleaning grill, power washing, cleaning outside windows, cleaning bus shelter area, sweeping up parking lot, cleaning outdoor furniture, and helping set up the Clothesline Project (end of Sept.)
