Hundreds of Turning Point supporters came together to celebrate the grand opening of a new emergency domestic violence shelter on September 6, 2013 in downtown Mt. Clemens.
Sue Coats, President & CEO of Turning Point, Sharon Ciaramitaro, Turning Point Board President, Mark Hackel, Macomb County Executive, and Kate Markel from the McGregor Fund participated in a ribbon-cutting ceremony to mark the grand opening. “We have been planning this facility since 2007,” said Sue Coats, CEO and President of Turning Point. “We are very pleased and excited that our dream has come to fruition.”
Residents moved into the new shelter in early October, 2103. The new shelter increased capacity from 37 beds to 52. Thirteen rooms with private or adjoining bathrooms allow for the sheltering of both small and large families, families with teenage boys and families with physical illnesses or handicaps needing a private room.
