General Information:

Domestic violence shelter. Emergency Hotline:877-438-4957

Turning Point operates two emergency shelters in Lehigh and Northampton Counties, accommodating single women and women with children in a communal living environment. The shelters provide a safe place for victims of domestic violence and their children to explore their options for approximately 30 days. Both shelter locations are confidential and have security systems maintained with 24-hour staff coverage. To access shelter services an individual must first call the helpline to be screened.

Women and their children living in the shelters are exposed to a living situation free from violence, often for the first time in their lives. Children learn by example that one can live without violence. Staff and volunteers model non-violent behavior and encourage adult victims to try non-violent parenting alternatives with their children, and non-violent conflict resolution with other shelter residents.
