“No other agency in Sullivan County does more to support survivors of domestic and sexual violence and their families,” said Anne Park. “Turning Points Network is there at every step from providing a 16-bed emergency shelter to counseling, court advocacy, assistance with employment, returning to school and transitional housing as well as presenting a wide range of violence-prevention education programs to Sullivan County schools to stop the pattern of violence before it begins.”
Anne Park of Granite State College will lead this year’s challenge as Honorary Chair of Steppin’ Up, supporting TPN’s commitment to raise $105,000 to assist survivors of domestic and sexual violence.

An Open Letter from our Honorary chair

Dear Friends:  

Your help with Steppin’ Up 2017 could save a life…

…because even today, a woman, child or man can be “sold” in New Hampshire for sexual services… and even this year, more than sixty women and their children will need to reside in our emergency shelter to be safe from abuse… and even in our own schools, right now, children can bully others causing serious emotional damage.

This is Turning Points Network’s 40th year of providing free support to survivors through our 16-bed emergency shelter, peer support groups, court advocacy, financial empowerment, and transitional housing as well as violence prevention programs designed for every age group in our public schools.

Last year, we assisted 864 women, children and men in their journeys to become safe.

And we reached 2,457 school children in Sullivan County with messages, role-playing and workshops on Anti-Bullying, Healthy Relationships, Consent and Sexual Violence, Body Safety and Preventing Dating Violence among a wide range of programs aimed at stopping violence before it can begin.

Our services will continue to be free to all who need them, in part through our 11th annual Steppin’ Up to End Violence Walk and Fun Run on Saturday, May 6.

We invite you to join our ongoing efforts to end violence in our communities by supporting Steppin’ Up and

Which means TPN can be available to every survivor in Sullivan County who needs us, whenever they need us, and continue our violence-prevention education reducing the number of victims and perpetrators.
