The Safe Home and Shelter Network The primary purpose of the Safe Home and Shelter Network is to provide victims and survivors fleeing domestic and sexual violence with a safe place to stay. The Shelter Manager and Volunteer Advocates work daily with guests to:
- Provide emotional support
- Develop and reach self-designed goals
- Access medical, social and mental health services
- Find safe, permanent housing
The Turning Points Network Shelter The shelter is a private building at an undisclosed location in Sullivan County and is equipped with secure entry systems. It is fully accessible to individuals with disabilities and limited mobility. The shelter can accommodate up to 16 individuals. Shared spaces include a toddler room, laundry facility, library, kitchen, dining and living room. Bedrooms are equipped for families.
Safe Home Network Long before the TPN shelter opened, the agency relied on safe homes to provide short-term, emergency housing to survivors and their families. Today, volunteers continue to generously open their homes to female and male survivors and their children. Guests in a Safe Home have access to the same services as guests in the shelter.
