What We Offer

Our History

TurnAround opened its doors in 1978 to serve survivors of sexual assault and intimate partner violence in Baltimore County. After seeing a gap in services for individuals abused through sexual violence in Baltimore City, in January of 1995, the agency expanded to provide counseling and support services to survivors in that jurisdiction as well. The agency’s name was changed to Second Step, Inc. in 1998 as we celebrated 20 years of service to the community.
In celebration of the new millennium, we became TurnAround, Inc., the first place to turn. In 2011, the agency initiated a comprehensive program focused on commercial sexual exploitation – the first of its kind in the state. Our mission has always been the same: to provide counseling and support services to victims of rape, incest and domestic violence and to increase community awareness and understanding of these issues.
