Purple Ribbon Society

Turning Point  created a powerful program for community leaders and organizations that wish to assist with Turning Point’s purposes, programs and priorities.

The average family we serve consists of a mother and two children. It costs about $1000 a year to shelter and provide support services to a Turning Point family.

We have created the Purple Ribbon Society to recognize those that support one or more of these families.  Funding received from the society will be used to support Turning Point’s service to victims of domestic violence by providing shelter, guidance and advocacy.

For additional information on the Purple Ribbon Society contact Stephanie Rowe, Turning Point’s Development Coordinator at (740) 382-8988. To join the Purple Ribbon Society or make any donation, please click the link.
