Services

Turning Point is a safe place where victims of abuse and their children can find refuge. The location of our shelters and identity of our clients are confidential. Services are provided without regard to race, income, sex, sexual preference, age, handicap, ethnicity, or religion.

At which things are we most effective? What would we like to celebrate most? Of what are we most proud? We help clients see that violence does not have to be a part of their lives. We empower clients to recognize options, and then support them—regardless of their choices. We have a true commitment to the victims of domestic violence, and to the agency itself. We are deeply motivated to giving hope, building self-esteem, and helping victims of domestic abuse climb out of the depths and into the light.

Here is some more information about our programs.

Support Counseling Services

Our counseling services and 24 hour helpline provide information and support.

Shelter Program

If you are in danger, Turning Point can provide a temporary home where you have access to counseling, advocacy and life skills education to help you start over.

Family Services Program

Through groups and family counseling with the non-abusive parent, we help children cope with their environment, solve conflict without violence, and realize that abuse in the home is not their fault.

Court Advocacy

Our Court Advocates can assist you as you seek help from the justice system.

Rural Outreach Program

Domestic abuse victims residing in rural areas face obstacles not necessarily encountered in urban settings, including geographic isolation, lack of transportation, fewer available resources such as housing, employment, medical services and child care, and potential lengthy response time from the police. These factors make it easier for batterers to exert power and control over their victims while perpetrating acts of physical, emotional, or sexual abuse.

Turning Point is pleased to announce the expansion of its Rural Outreach program.  Turning Point now offers counseling/advocacy services in the Easton area, Bath-Nazareth area and continued service in the Slate Belt area.
