Ways to Give

Monetary Donations

Turning Point never charges for services to victims of domestic violence, which is why we count on individual donors, charitable foundations and business supporters in the community to help fund our programs. Please consider making a one-time or recurring donation today.

In-Kind Donations

Turning Point operates two in-house pantries for our clients. We accept donations of nonperishable foods, personal hygiene items, and household cleaning and paper products by appointment. We DO NOT accept any open, used, or expired items, including clothing and furniture.
