TPN wants to provide you with the latest news about local, state, and national programs and initiatives to end violence in our communities.
A colossal thank you to the Hypertherm HOPE Foundation for contributing $8,000 to Turning Point Network's School Based Violence Prevention Program.

Programs focus on healthy and respectful relationships that counter bullying, sexual harassment, physical and sexual violence. The Hypertherm HOPE Foundation supports our programming for grades Preschool through 12th grade. THANK YOU!
