March 2020:

In light of the recent local and global concern regarding the spread of the Coronavirus, A Turning Point will be closing all regular programming (Food Pantry, Wardrobe, Academy, & Community Meals) the week of March 15th until further notice.

 

However, we WILL be serving guests in need of FOOD on Saturdays from 9 - 11 am by distributing pre-packed boxes in a drive thru fashion via our parking lot. Directions and guidance will be given upon arrival.

 

In order to prevent traffic issues, please DO NOT arrive before 8:30 am to get in line.

If you are a NEW family needing assistance, you MUST complete our New Client Registration by Thursday at 5:00 pm.  Service cannot happen without this being completed 24 hours in advance.
