Turning Pointe Domestic Violence Services has been providing shelter and services for victims of domestic violence (DV) including women, children, men and family pets since 2000.
With 54-bed Turning Pointe operate one of the largest domestic violence shelters in the State. The shelter was built in 2008. 
 
Our shelter is unique in that we allow clients to bring their pets to the shelter. This is especially important as victims of domestic violence often stay in an abusive home as they are not willing to leave their pet with the abuser.
 
While the average stay at the shelter is 60 days, we allow clients to stay for up to 90 days.  We offer assistance locating housing and finding employment. We continue to provide advocacy and supportive services after they transition to more permanent housing for as long as they are in need, often for several years or more.
 
Our facility provides private rooms for families that are set-up as small suites with a kitchenette, beds and furniture.  We have additional adjoining rooms with beds that are linked for larger families.  We have: a large community kitchen; adult, teen and children's lounges; fenced and secure outdoor space with play sets, basketball court, patios, outdoor furniture, barbeques and pet kennels; food pantry, clothing bank and basic supplies including pet food and diapers; and administrative offices and program space.
