Mission Statement

Our mission is to strengthen at-risk youth and families through quality programs, activities, and opportunities that provide relationship, coaching and education by partnering with the community to break cycles of poverty.

Description

One of our primary programs at Turning Point is "Homework Factory" - an academic program held at an elementary school in Shoreline which has a high percentage of low-income and disadvantaged children. With 500 students of rich cultural diversity, over 30 languages spoken in the home, and 60-70 students in ESL, the demand for additional support is growing while budgets are shrinking. Homework Factory provides free after school homework support and tutoring for kids and a positive, safe environment for students who desperately need it. Currently we have approximately 30 students, 2nd-6th grade enrolled with a waiting list. There is far more need than we can meet.
