The Turning Point Program is a long-term (1-2 year) case management program that extends Womenspace services to survivors who have left abusive partners.

The purpose of the program is:

  • To help survivors develop and achieve personal goals
  • To encourage their efforts toward economic and emotional stability for themselves and their children
  • To support them in their desire to lead lives free from violence

Program services include:

  • Weekly meetings with a case manager
  • Information about the dynamics and effects of intimate partner violence
  • Peer counseling and support
  • Advocacy, resources, and referrals
  • Life skills
