Benefits Turnstone Center
Turnstone Center for Children and Adults with Disabilities was founded in 1943 as the Allen County Society for Crippled Children. The agency began as an educational program with volunteers teaching six children with special needs. Through the years, the agency and its program offerings grew, and a new facility was found to house both the budding children’s program; as well as a new program for adults with disabilities.
It was in 1989 that the agency changed it name to Turnstone to reflect its ever evolving programs. Through the years, the agency’s name, facility, staff, leadership, and programs have all changed. However, the heart and soul of Turnstone remains unchanged. It is this heart and soul that fuels the passion of our work. And our work, in turn, helps people with disabilities live good lives, with dignity and independence.
Turnstone’s current facility is located on 14 acres at 3320 North Clinton Street. To keep up with its grassroots growth, the Clinton Street facility has been expanded three times. This state-of-the-art, 55,000-square foot, one-story building houses the Robert Kimbrough Early Learning Center, a full sized gymnasium, a therapeutic pool, as well as northeast Indiana’s only fully accessible fitness area.
In 2007, Turnstone served 2,200 people with physical disabilities of all ages through education, therapy, recreation, support groups, and adult day programs. The agency is best known for its professionalism in the delivery of services, the quality of services and its ability to operate in a fiscally responsible manner. Governed by a dynamic board of community volunteers and a highly trained staff of caring professionals, Turnstone has a sterling reputation in the community and is respected for its long history of providing quality, innovative, and unique services.
