Turningpoint for Victims of Domestic and Sexual Violence has provided services and support to our community for 40 years.
Turningpoint began as a crisis line and an all volunteer “safe house” program. In 1989, after nearly a decade of renting shelter facilities, Turningpoint conducted a successful capital campaign to build its own facility. With the support of the community, Turningpoint built its first 14-bed shelter, which remains the only domestic and sexual violence crisis shelter in all of Pierce and St. Croix Counties of Wisconsin.
Today, in addition to providing shelter and at 24-hour crisis counseling, Turningpoint offers legal system support, children’s programming, violence prevention education, safety planning, support groups, and emergency food and hygiene products. Turningpoint has been the state-designated Sexual Assault Services Provider (SASP) for Pierce and St. Croix Counties since 1995.
