Turning Points loves our Volunteers! Volunteer events happen throughout the year. We welcome individuals and groups of volunteers to reach out if you are interested in participating in a certain event/activity or would like to create your own volunteering event.

It's the Season of Giving!  

Here's how you can help:


Brighter Holidays

Every year, Turning Points works to collect thousands of gifts, one for each and every child and teen in our care, so that no child ends the year feeling forgotten. Donors and volunteers like you make this possible.

Help us give the gift of a brighter holiday and hope for a brighter future.   

Donate new pajamas, books or toys for boys and girls 3 months to 18 years old. Donations are due by December 9th.
