Turning Points

Snap Program

Turning Points is looking for an exceptional volunteer to make telephone calls and schedule appointments for case managers in their Transitional Housing Development Program.

Last fiscal year 825 adults and 790 children gained housing or were prevented from becoming homeless through the Transitional Housing Development Program. Almost 1,600 heads of households learned budgeting basics.

If you have great verbal and written communication skills and are willing to go the extra mile with exceptional customer service we need you. We ask that you commit one morning or afternoons per week for 4 hours and bi-lingual is a plus but not a requirement for this position.

We love our volunteers.
