$5,000 donation benefits Turning Point
WOODSTOCK – Domestic violence survivors in McHenry County will benefit from a $5,000 donation made by Verizon Wireless to Turning Point to help support the agency’s mission and fund vital support services.
Turning Point has served the needs of domestic violence victims for more than 32 years. In addition to offering counseling, legal and non-legal advocacy, and 24-hour crisis intervention and response, Turning Point is also McHenry County’s only domestic violence shelter. Between 2011 and 2012, a staff of just 33 employees served approximately 1,800 women, children and men in need of support.
“Women come to us in the middle of the night with nothing but the clothes on their backs,” said Jane Farmer, Turning Point executive director. “We provide pajamas, food, a comfortable bed, nice bathroom and most importantly someone who will listen and provide support.”
