September Nonprofit Spotlight:
We are excited to announce that SNA Today will be donating $200 to… Turning Point
Turning Point, the only domestic violence program in Union County, has been in existence since 1985 offering support and advocacy to victims of domestic violence. In early 1986, a crisis hotline was established. Later that year, the program was expanded to include support groups. These groups offered a safe atmosphere where victims of domestic violence could express their feelings and learn about the dynamics of domestic violence.
On July 1, 2015, Turning Point acquired the Sexual Assault Resource Center (SARC) and Tree House Children’s Advocacy Center (CAC) from Safe Alliance in Union County. The SARC provides survivors of sexual assault with a 24/7 crisis line, hospital accompaniment for a sexual assault kit, support groups, counseling, and advocacy appointments to assist with safety planning, crisis intervention, resource referrals, and court accompaniment. The Tree House CAC is a multi-disciplinary approach to child abuse investigations. Turning Point’s Tree House provides a forensic interview, medical exam, trauma assessment, advocacy, and counseling/support groups for children and their non-offending caregivers who have been sexually abused, physically abused, or witnessed violence in their home.
Turning Point’s vision is that all people will have safe and healthy relationships, free from domestic abuse, sexual assault, and child abuse in their homes, schools, workplaces, and communities.
Turning Point exists to end domestic abuse, sexual assault, and child abuse through safe shelter, advocacy, prevention, and social change.
