Many of the children we serve do not have access to books in their homes. This year the Parenting program distributed age-appropriate books to children so they could start their own libraries. To show their appreciation, several of the recipients wrote thank you notes. Thank you to our book sponsor First Book.
Regina Pringle, a True Turning Point
We are celebrating one of our staff members who received her bachelor's degree in 2015. Regina Pringle is truly a Turning Point.
Before coming to Turning Points, Regina Pringle served in the ARMY Reserves and was stationed at Fort Dix during Desert Storm. She has worked with the homeless in a shelter, and worked for the School District of Philadelphia at Blaine Elementary.
Philadelphia, PA – March 12, 2012 —The Families and Schools Together (FAST) program of Turning Points for Children was the focus of a site visit by members of the National Association of School Psychologists (NASP) during their national convention in Philadelphia recently.
In Philadelphia, thousands of children come into out-of-home care each year. Many of these children are placed in temporary foster care while the family and social workers work together to build upon a family’s existing strengths, address concerns, and when at all possible, reunite the children with their family in a safe, loving home.
