Turning Point began in 1980 through the grassroots efforts of community volunteers who wanted to provide a supportive and safe environment for victims of domestic violence. With a 15-bed shelter and 24-hour crisis line, it was one of the first programs of its kind. Today, the agency operates from four locations: a 39-bed emergency shelter and 24-hour crisis line, a combined outreach, administrative office and second hand store, a Personal Protection Order Office, and a Sexual Assault Forensic Nurse Examiners Program.
We also offer the following services: a children’s program, non-residential advocacy, individual counseling for domestic violence and sexual assault, hospital and court advocacy, an education and prevention program, and various support groups.
Turning Point has a long history of providing advocacy for domestic and sexual assault survivors, both locally and throughout the State of Michigan. The Executive Director was recognized in 1997 by the Michigan Coalition Against Domestic & Sexual Violence with the Apple Blossom Award for her outstanding efforts to end violence against women in Michigan. Turning Point’s Director of Children Services won the Seedling Award for her efforts on behalf of children living in domestic violence shelters. In 2006, Turning Point received an award from the National Family Violence Prevention Fund for advocacy efforts on behalf of domestic violence victims in the child welfare system. For over 30 years, Turning Point has remained committed to keeping people safe from violence.
