Turning Point was created to help end domestic abuse, sexual assault, and child abuse in Union County.
How does it work • They use a three-tiered approach starting with intervention, prevention and advocacy.
As you can imagine, intervention is providing a safe place for families that need to leave violent homes. Turning Point has a 24-hour, domestic violence shelter which provides safe haven for many families.
If you are in danger, they recommend you reach out to local authorities via 911. Once you are safe, you can call their crisis line at 704-283-SAFE (7233). If you know someone in possibly danger, please ask them to read the following on identifying abuse, click here.
Prevention is educating others about the signs of abuse and advocacy is changing how we as a society view abuse and recognize it.
