Domestic violence survivors come to us seeking safety, healing, and the start to a new, violence-free life. Turning Point operates a 24-hour, domestic violence shelter with a 42-bed capacity.
- Our domestic violence shelter operates 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Our highly secured facility is monitored 24/7, and anyone seeking to gain access to our facility, including residents, must be physically admitted by a Turning Point team member.
- Our shelter has a total of 10 rooms. Eight rooms with four beds, and two rooms with six beds for larger families. Each room is individually decorated to serve as a safe haven for our clients.
- Our domestic violence team, which includes staff members and numerous community partners, also offers mental health services, parenting classes, and budgeting and employability classes for our clients, helping to lay a solid foundation for successful independence.
- Our shelter residents receive three meals a day and snacks, prepared by our onsite cook who works in our commercial-grade kitchen. Our meals are thoughtfully planned and prepared with a variety of preferences in mind.
How to seek safe shelter
If you are in immediate danger by an intimate partner or ex-partner, call 911. Law enforcement can help you get to the shelter. When you are in a safe position to call, please dial our crisis line at 704-283-SAFE (7233).
Let the advocate know that you need safe shelter and you will complete a brief assessment over the phone.
All of our services are available to clients who are residing both in and out of our shelter.
