Providing Help Since 1970
Turning Point Home was founded in 1970 by a small group of dedicated individuals who were concerned about the lack of resources in our community for alcoholic women. One donated property and buildings and others gave generously of their time and energy.
Since that time nearly 2,000 women have received help at Turning Point. The program has evolved and developed over the years with alumni coming back to attend meetings, participate in our alumni association, sponsor current residents and serve on the Board of Directors. The caring, love and support that began in 1970 continues today and is palpable within our walls.
To support alcoholic women in achieving long-term sobriety in a safe, supportive and structured alcohol/drug-free environment through guidance and education.
Who we are
Located on the edge of San Diego’s Golden Hill park, the Turning Point Home is a community-based, peer-oriented, residential recovery home which provides shelter, food and recovery services to alcoholic women.
Our program’s staff encourages residents to participate in varied social settings and assists them in meeting personal needs. Women are required to attend AA meetings in the community as well as meetings held at The Turning Point Home.
The Turning Point program is a minimum of three months and up to one year. It includes attendance at meetings of Alcoholics Anonymous, alcohol and drug education, relapse prevention, household chores and responsibilities, and groups pertaining to the physical psychological and behavioral aspects of recovery. Our program provides recovery and exit planning, daily discussion groups with peers, one on one meetings with staff and a weekly resident meeting.
The Turning Point Home is a tax-exempt organization under 501(c) (3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Cash as well as in-kind donations are tax deductible.
