Turning Point began in 1980 through the grassroots efforts of community volunteers who wanted to provide a safe place for victims of domestic violence Turning Point opened with a 15-bed shelter and 24-hour crisis line. In 1986 sexual assault intervention and prevention were added to our mission. Located in the Metro Detroit, Tri-County area, Turning Point has a long history of providing advocacy for domestic and sexual assault survivors, both locally and throughout the State of Michigan
All people have the right to a violence-free life. Turning Point recognizes the importance of empowering people and working to end violence by providing counseling, support, advocacy, and a safe haven. We are committed to improving the lives of victims/survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault through advocacy for changes in the “systems” and through community collaboration. A community working together to end violence does make a difference.
