♥♥ Please Help Protect Women & Children Against Domestic Violence♥♥
Turning Point is a nonprofit agency in McHenry County, Illinois dedicated to protecting women and children against domestic violence.
Just in 2009 alone it has served 1,834 clients.
In these tough economic times, while state and federal funding is increasingly becoming scarce, Turning Point has seen a tremendous increase in demand for its services, which include emergency shelter, counseling, and whatever else necessary to help victims transition into a safe environment.
Individual and group support is critical to Turning Point's services and the need for community financial support is even greater now.
