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.

Advocacy. Awareness. Education.
#MidweekMention Thanksgiving 2023: This year the food was provided by Turning Pointe Board Members and community supporters. Adria, Lead Mobile Advocate, prepared the whole meal so that clients could relax and enjoy an stress-free evening. Additionally, our Youth Advocate JenieLynn and Youth Intern Maddy, facilitated a Thanksgiving craft with the mothers and children. Another successful holiday in the books thanks to all that helped!
#MissionMonday "There was a client that we were able to get into permanent housing after only being at the shelter for 2 weeks. The woman was crying saying how much we had helped her in the short amount of time. She stated that she had been working with other organizations outside of Mason County and did not feel heard or supported. She was overjoyed with tears in her eyes when she found out she and her children could still utilize our services without living at the shelter". - Tersa, Support Group Facilitator
