Delaware Shelter Campaign

Campaign for a New  Regional  Domestic Violence Shelter in  Delaware County

          Our Goal: $3.2 Million   

Delaware is the largest county in the state without a domestic violence shelter, but thanks to the support of the United Way of Delaware County, The Women’s Leadership Network (WLN), and other organizations, that will no longer be true.

Your support will save lives.  

The WLN has committed $400,000 for the new shelter in Delaware. With the support of the community, Turning Point’s goal is to establish a secure place for individuals and families affected by domestic violence.

About the Delaware Shelter

The two primary buildings each include approximately 4,300 square feet on the main level and 1,800 square feet on a lower level that has walk-out access.

Renovations to the west building will include:
• large living and dining area with plenty of windows and natural light;
• kitchen where residents can cook;
• office for resident coordinator;
• private wing with eight sleeping rooms;
• each room with a full in-suite bath and bathtub;
• one ADA-accessible suite;
• large children’s play room with children’s coordinator office in the lower level that opens to the outside; and
• laundry room in the lower level.

We will attach the west and east buildings through a connector to enhance security. The connector will house the only entrance to the shelter and include a workstation that is staffed around the clock every day. Other doors will exist as exits, but alarms will sound when opened.

When renovated, the east building will include:

  • a conference room for group and community sessions;
  • office for victims’ rights advocate;
  • two single sleeping rooms, identical to those in the west building; and
  • three transitional housing rooms, each equipped with a bedroom, living room, and bathroom.

The net square footage of the shelter, including both renovated areas and a new connector, is 13,000 square feet.
