Turning Point provides shelter for adults and children who are escaping abusive situations.

Executive Director Derek Osborn said the agency is in the process of relocating its shelter, so this grant will help put the finishing touches on a new safe space designed for anyone facing a crisis.

“This will allow us to help more people that need our services in emergency situations, and we are very, very excited about that,” said Osborn.

If you or someone you know needs emergency assistance, Turning Point has a 24-hour crisis line available at 205-758-0808.
