Emergency Shelter

Turning Point’s emergency shelter provides temporary housing for survivors and their children who are fleeing from domestic violence or sexual assault. The shelter is a secure, handicap accessible building with 52 beds and 13 bedrooms.

  • On average, shelter provides a safe haven for over 500 survivors and their children annually.  
  • Shelter provides a safe haven for survivors of all genders and orientations. 
  • Shelter residents have access to 24-hour advocacy, support, and resources.
  • The children’s program also provides counseling, activities, and outings for families.  
  • Thanks to a community partnership, survivors do not have to worry about the safety of their pets when entering shelter, as pets can be housed safely off site.
