Turning Point seeks help to feed shelter residents


Follow The Republic:


Columbus' Turning Point Domestic Violence Services needs help to purchase food for 17 children, an unusually large number being housed with their families at the agency's facility.

"Our shelter has been overfull for the majority of the summer, and, unfortunately, the trend continues," Turning Point President Lisa Shafran said.

"We have had a tremendous number of children in the shelter, and our resources for food have really been taxed as a result," she added.

Turning Point operates a 25-bed shelter for domestic violence victims. It receives 13 percent of its current, $1.6 million budget from United Way of Bartholomew County. The 17 children at the shelter range in age from infants to teens.
