Second Chance Boutique Volunteers Needed

Save to Favorites

TURNING POINT INC

  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
  • 48 people are interested

A substantial portion of the funding that pays for Turning Point's vital programming comes from our Second Chance Boutiques and Home Decor store. We are very fortunate to receive a huge amount of donations for our stores, but it takes a lot of hands to sort through everything and prepare it to be sold. We are looking for dedicated, organized and excited volunteers to help keep the donation area in order and sort through donated items. We'll take as many hours as you can give us each week. We rely heavily on volunteers to keep our stores running smoothly!

Description

Turning Point, the only domestic violence program in Union County, has been in existence since 1985 offering support and advocacy to victims of domestic violence. In early 1986, a crisis hot line was established. Later that year, the program was expanded to include support groups. In December 1, 1999 a Groundbreaking Ceremony was held for the new Turning Point facility. In 2001, Turning Point completed an 11,000 square foot new facility with 42 beds.On July 1, 2015, Turning Point acquired the Sexual Assault Resource Center (SARC) and Tree House Children’s Advocacy Center (CAC) from Safe Alliance in Union County. The SARC provides survivors of sexual assault with a 24/7 crisis line, hospital accompaniment for a sexual assault kit, support groups, counseling, and advocacy appointments to assist with safety planning, crisis intervention, resource referrals, and court accompaniment. The Tree House CAC is a multi-disciplinary approach to child abuse investigations. Turning Point’s Tree House provides a forensic interview, medical exam, trauma assessment, advocacy, and counseling/support groups for children and their non-offending caregivers who have been sexually abused, physically abused, or witnessed violence in their home. The two new programs are located at 150 Winchester Avenue.
