24 Hour Crisis Advocacy
We provide immediate services to inform and support persons affected, directly or indirectly, by sexual violence. Our volunteer advocates are trained to listen, assess the needs of the caller, offer support, and plan for their safety. When appropriate, the crisis volunteer will notify the police department, hospital, a Sexual Assault Forensic Examiner (SAFE) and an advocate from The Turning Point to assist the victim.
Courtney's S.A.F.E. Place and Hospital Accompaniment
Advocates are available 24 ours a day. 7 days a week to provide support and information. When you go to one of our hospital partners, or our free, in-office, clinic called Courtney's SAFE Place, and inform them that you are there for a Sexual Assault Forensic Examination, you will be escorted back to an ER room or clinic room. Shortly thereafter, an advocate from The Turning Point will meet with you and stay by your side throughout you exam and provide emotional support, information and referrals, safety planning and serve as the liaison between the survivor, family members, law enforcement and hospital.
Through individual counseling, survivors are able to process their sexual violence experience and begin to reclaim the power and control they felt was taken away from them.
To schedule an assessment or for more information on receiving counseling, contact us at 972.985.0951 and ask to speak with a counselor.
We have legal advocates who can help you with Crime Victims Compensation, court case accompaniment, Address Confidentiality program, referrals for other services, and any other questions that survivors or their loved ones may have.
We offer a multilevel, structured sexual violence prevention series geared at empowering students to become agents of change. Students are challenged to “Be EPIC” or in other words to Be Educated, Pro-Active, Influential and Changed when faced with the issues of bullying, sexual harassment and sexual assault.

The Turning Point Education teams offers education programs which emphasize the effects of bullying, sexual harassment and sexual violence to individuals, faith-based communities, law enforcement, non-profit organizations, colleges and universities, medical practitioners, and businesses to reach this goal.
