The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe.

Turning Point Community Programs provides services to people with disabilities and their families, including mental health services, support, employment, housing and advocacy.
Turning Point Community Programs is one of the largest providers of services to Sacramento and Stanislaus County's' mentally disabled populations. We strive to treat our clients with respect, listen to their preferences, answer their concerns and appreciate their individualism. Traditionally, people with persistent mental illnesses have been involuntarily hospitalized. We consider institutional placement the last conceivable recourse rather than the first response. As an alternative to more costly hospitalization in state mental health facilities, Turning Point saves tax dollars with its highly efficient operation.
