1 in 4 women,
1 in 7 men,
experience domestic violence

Every 73 seconds, an American is sexually assaulted. And every 9 minutes, that victim is a child. Meanwhile, only 5 out of every 1,000 perpetrators will end up in prison

About Turning Pointe Survivor Advocacy Center

Providing shelter and services for victims of domestic violence (DV) including women, children, men and family pets since 2000

With 56 beds Turning Pointe operates one of the largest domestic violence shelters in the state.  Our shelter was built in 2008 and is unique in that we allow clients to bring their pets to the shelter. This is especially important because victims of domestic violence often stay in an abusive home because they are not willing to leave their pets with the abuser.

Thank you for calming me down and listening. I have been living with this violence for over 10 years and have never told anyone. You made my heart smile today. Thank you for caring.


I truly am grateful for all your hard work making sure survivors have a safe place. Thank you.


Thanks for listening and believing me. No one wants to believe men are victims or that men need help, but we do.

How we help

We make a difference in the lives of people going through a very traumatic time.


Be a part of making our shelter rooms warm and welcoming for the women, men and children that come to us seeking safety.

Families often times come to us with nothing but the clothes they are wearing. When they finally are able to enter their room, we want them to feel welcomed and cared for. 

Contact Courtney@turningpointe.org for more information on how YOU can support our Shelter.

Cards By Survivors

 Purchase cards with art created by the youth and families supported by the center.

Set of 6 – 5×7 blank cards, includes envelopes
$12 plus $5 for shipping

This summer, we were planning a family art night to offer families impacted by domestic and sexual violence an opportunity to have fun, connect, and create together. We provided some food and a variety of art projects for youth and families. One of the art projects that families could participate in was this Cards by Survivors project. If survivors wanted to, they could create a piece of art and submit it to be used for this project. Then, several submissions were chosen to be made into cards that we could sell to donors in the community.

#MissionMonday "We received a large shipment of shelter supplies, and a client passed by as we were bringing them in. I stopped to greet her and asked how her day was going. She smiled and said her day was great because I took the time to acknowledge and simply ask how she was. She added that this was one of the many reasons she was grateful to be at our shelter." - Chelsey, Program Coordinator


#MissionMonday "A client locked her keys in her car with her toddler inside. She ran to the front door in a panic. We ran out to the car and calmly reassured her that we would get someone to come open it right away. As I spoke with the client, my coworker called Olympic Lock and Key and within minutes they arrived and had the door open. The client was so relieved and thankful for all the help we gave." - Billy, Shelter Support Assistant


#SpotlightSaturday We are pleased to have Billy as our Shelter Support Assistant. His dog Pepper is a joy to have around the office too! 😊


#MidweekMention We want to thank Megan, owner of Homewood Floral, for generously donating beautiful bouquets for our private event last week. An additional thank you to Gerry and Heather with Wild & Woodsy Catering for knocking it out of the park (yet again) with their superb appetizers. The flowers and food were enjoyed by all!


#MissionMonday "A landlord called to let us know how grateful they are for our housing program and the client who is living in their rental. They had nothing but outstanding things to say about the client and how relieved they are to have a good tenant." - Jaiden, Housing Lead Advocate
