The holidays are filled with light, laughter, and hope for most of us. We are able to spend happy times with family and friends, enjoying their company and companionship. Have you ever thought about what the holidays may be like for a person in a violent relationship? Or for a child who witnesses violence in their home during the holiday season?
“I know I am safe and the yelling has stopped but there are many things I had to leave, Like my house, our beautiful Christmas tree, my friends, my dog, and school. These things were important to me. I miss them a lot”. – a child survivor at Turning Point
The holidays are very difficult for battered women and their children. They will not be able to embrace the holiday and can certainly use some light in the midst of their darkness.
You can help! With your support, we can provide a safe and warm place for many during this very challenging time of year. For over 30 years, Turning Point has offered shelter, advocacy, and counseling to help victims/survivors of domestic and sexual violence regain control of their lives.
