Together we Make a Difference!
Our goal is to address and ultimately end the cycle of violence in the home while supporting victims with dignity and compassion. Our advocacy on behalf of victims includes a wide variety of support services. In fiscal year 2014 alone, Starting Point served over 600 individuals in Carroll County.
Rebuilding a life after violence is never a smooth journey. Our trained advocates, both professional and volunteer, are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to assist victims on their road to healing. In addition to 24 hour support via our crisis line, we also provide emergency shelter for those in need. Starting Point advocates on any given day may also:
Starting Point is supported through individual donations, special events, private grants, Carroll County municipalities and through Federal Government and State of New Hampshire victims’ assistance programs. However, each year state and federal funding continues to decrease and Starting Point must increasingly rely on the generosity of our donors.
Please support this important work and make a donation now! You will make a difference in the life of someone living right here in Carroll County.
