Providing Help Since 1970
The 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 over 2,000 women have received help at The Turning Point Home. Our services have evolved and developed over the years with alumnae coming back to attend meetings, participate in our alumnae 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.
Our Mission: To help alcoholic women achieve long-term sobriety in a safe, supportive, structured, alcohol and drug-free environment, through guidance and education.
