“I donate to Turning Point because I believe that in order for a society to be healthy, it needs to care for all of its members, especially those who are most vulnerable. I am grateful to be able to support their work. It would be incredible to live in a world where incidents of domestic violence and sexual abuse did not exist and where all women were safe and all children received adequate care. This is not our reality and as sad as it is, I am so grateful to Turning Point for playing such a vital role in keeping our community strong and safer. As a volunteer I was able to witness firsthand the difference that Turning Point made in the lives of women and children. I cannot even begin to explain the extent of the need in our community or the ability of Turning Point to address that need at every level. I am in awe of the work done by the staff and volunteers at Turning Point. As a community we need to continue to support their mission.“—Mary Ann Jarrett
