Mission, Vision & History

OUR MISSION is to provide counseling, education, and advocacy for those impacted by sexual violence.

OUR VISION is to deliver the highest quality of comprehensive treatment services for survivors of all forms of sexual violence and to set the standard for prevention education that promotes social change to end bullying, sexual harassment and sexual violence.

The Rape Crisis Center of Collin County was established by a social worker, Carol Finch, who observed that victims of sexual assault need additional counseling and emotional support beyond the initial crime report. The agency originated in 1982, in conjunction with the North Texas Medical Center and the McKinney Police Department, to ensure that survivors of sexual assault had a professional support system to help them in their recovery. While The Turning Point has experienced many changes, one thing has remained constant, the unwavering commitment to our mission.
