A Turning Point

A Turning Point offers services to clients looking to become more independent and self-sufficient. Clients can visit our Food Pantry weekly, our Wardrobe (clothes closet) monthly, and make use of our Academy (adult educational opportunities) as often as needed.

Our Food Pantry offers a variety of healthy choices of food including fresh vegetables, fruit, and meat. Clients self select their choices.

Our Wardrobe allows our clients to select clothing items on a monthly basis - shirts, dresses, pants, jeans, and shoes. All sizes available based on donations.

A Turning Point Academy is an alternative to the GED process for an adult to earn a high school diploma. Each client has an individualized program based on the credits needed to complete coursework required. Curriculum, technology resources, and tutoring are all provided. Our Academy also offers seminars in budgeting/finance, application assistance, job interviewing and more.

All services are free of charge to all.

A Turning Point is a non-profit striving to give folks a hand up toward self-sufficiency.

Our mission is to empower people with the tools and resources needed to gain and maintain self-sufficiency.
