The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
To provide programs and services that enable victims/survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault to regain control of their lives.
Turning Point began in 1980 through the grassroots efforts of community volunteers who wanted to provide a supportive and safe environment for victims of domestic violence. With a 15-bed shelter and 24-hour crisis line, it was one of the first programs of its kind. Today, the agency operates from four locations: a 39-bed emergency shelter and 24-hour crisis line, a combined outreach, administrative office and second hand store, a Personal Protection Order Office, and a Sexual Assault Forensic Nurse Examiners Program.
We also offer the following services: a children’s program, non-residential advocacy, individual counseling for domestic violence and sexual assault, hospital and court advocacy, an education and prevention program, and various support groups.
