Kids at Heart 2020

Turning Points for Children celebrated our Virtual Gala with "Light up the Night", shining a light on families made stronger and futures made brighter. 

PHMC has been a guiding light in helping Turning Points adapt to a new way of carrying out our mission during this current pandemic. Most of our programs are considered essential services, so our social workers continue to provide resources and services to vulnerable children and families. They are frontline heroes.

Thank you to everyone who supported our largest fundraiser of the year. While the event may have changed to a virtual platform, our mission remains the same. We are building Stronger Families and Brighter Futures.

Learn about our nominees.
