Volunteers Needed

This is your opportunity to volunteer in one of the busiest programs at Turning Points?

4,317 men and women received critical needs services at the Turning Points Day Resource Center in fiscal year 2021-2022. These services were provided with compassion and helped to restore dignity and self-esteem to Turning Points clients. Without volunteers, it would be next to impossible to provide the volume of services listed above. In that same year 583 volunteers donated 41,761 hours of direct services worth payroll value of $1,604,920.

Clients in this program received clothes, shoes, access to hot showers, laundry service, mailroom services, access to computers and phones, employment opportunities and job training. Our volunteer barbers and stylists completed over 1,000 haircuts.

We love our volunteers and hope you will consider joining our family.
