Grant Transforms Kitchen at Turning Point Homeless Shelter

The Women’s Fund at the Steuben County Community Foundation (SCCF) awarded Turning Point Homeless Shelter $5,400 in May 2017 to upgrade their small kitchen.  Recently completed, the kitchen is now an open area that families, who are without a home, can utilize during their stay at the shelter.  Turning Point transformed a space that had been used for storage and was not functional at all into an area where families can cook together, children can work on homework at the table, and families spend their evenings in conversation.


The Women’s Fund at SCCF, established through the legacy of Lucille Whitman and Wava Aughenbaugh, awards grants to local organizations who are working to improve the lives of women and girls.
