Here are a few stories from our residents:
“It’s enlightening. The staff is awesome. I’m feeling super comfortable. God is working in my life. Thank you.” – Shelly
“I have called Turning Point my home for the past 10 months. This place means so much to me it is hard to put in to words. I plan to stay for several more months rokenecause the love and support I’ve found here is so valuable to me. It is a safe place to rebuild or just build your life. I’m grateful that I had a second chance and Turning Point is a huge part of making that second chance so fruitful. I will continue to give back after I move out because a place like this gave a woman like me hope. I hope it continues to serve women for many more years. Turning Point Home is something really special. I am forever grateful for the staff, residents, and board who make this magic possible.” – Ashleigh B.
Just knowing that I was on the list for a bed at Turning Point made my stay in primary treatment much more hopeful. Feeling safe and secure makes all the difference in the recovery process. Being a woman of 53 with repeated relapses and nowhere to go if not placed in a treatment program was a very bleak future for myself. I now can see a bit of light that can achieved by staying willing, open minded and working the steps. I thank Turning Point for choosing me and giving me a place to call home. I am excited to walk hand in hand with my new sober sisters and being teachable by staff and my sponsor.” – Cat
“My name is Catalina, I am an Alcoholic. I’ve been at Turning Point Home for a little over a month and my experience here, as of yet, has been amazing. I love this place and the women in it. The house has a great energy about it. I feel safe and cared for here.
The Staff is very special. They all care about me and my recovery. I’ve already learned so much from each of them. I know that if I have any problems or just want to talk, someone is available for me to confer with.
The women staying here all want to be here. They all want their recovery. It’s great to have that kind of support around me. I am very grateful.
I love my room, I have a lot of space. My bed is soft. My roommate is awesome. The food here is really good. The meals are well balanced and cooking is fun. The house is warm and inviting.
I love Turning Point and will recommend it to all who need this kind of treatment.” – Catalina B
Turning Point has been the greatest blessing in my life and in my recovery. I was broken when I came in and this house has saved my life. I feel safe and supported by my sisters in the house. Staff is always available for guidance and if I just need to talk. I have been granted grace and a place to recovery with dignity and I am very grateful to Turning Point Home” – Andrea I.
“Turning Point…As seen through my eyes…
Every morning, while enjoying my first cup of coffee, I purposely look at the “bricks of wisdom” in the Meditation Garden. The one I dwell on is from Tim L. and it reads, “You are safe here”. I understand this simple truth for me, more deeply and more comprehensively every day.
I knew on the day I applied and interviewed, May 4th 2016, that this HOME would be the place I would heal, not only my alcohol addiction, but my heart and the shattered pieces I have carried on the journey getting here.
During my 43 days here, I have observed unconditional positive regard between peers, staff and residents. That is how things should be, but the reality is much different in many places.
Please know, each day I live here, grow here, hurt here, and seek God’s next indicated step – I learn more lessons about TPH being God’s Hand extended.
In the book, The Servant, by James Hunter – he introduces Servant Leadership and the Inverted pyramid of leadership – In TPH case: The BOD supports and undergirds the Executive Director who the same for the Program Coordinator and both together support and nourish the rest of the staff who walk faithfully with residents.
