Supporting Survivors of Domestic and Sexual Violence!
May your home be filled with an abundance of
Peace and Love
that warms the heart, calms the soul, and welcomes the weary.
And in the face of strife and insecurity may you always
hold tight to Hope that
Goodwill and Loving Kindness will Prevail.
Unfortunately, for the 241 survivors who received
supportive services and emergency shelter at
Turning Point in the last year,
Peace and Love
were lost to violence and danger.
HOME did not shield them or comfort them.
Amidst the threats and injuries, many LOST HOPE.
But those 241 called for help.
Those who came for services received:
- SAFE SHELTER through 5,159 secure bednights (one bed per person per night) with food and personal supplies (103 women and 64 of their children).
- EMOTIONAL AND PRACTICAL STRENGTH to make it through the civil and criminal court systems through Advocacy focused on their needs (including 85 non-residential survivors).
- ECONOMIC EMPOWERMENTto help sustain safe living without being dependent on an abuser via workshops on budgeting, banking, credit, and smart consumer tips.
- CRISIS INTERVENTION forcallers needing advice, emotional support, safety planning, information and referrals through 772 hotline calls.
- PUBLIC EDUCATION on the dynamics of domestic and sexual violence through 18 presentations reaching 427 members of civic organizations, church groups and social service providers.
