Volunteers help guests "shop" for necessary clothing from our donated clothing supplies. 

 

Other opportunites for volunteers that are not guest facing include sorting donations, hanging, folding, & organizing "the shop".

 

All ages are welcome to help.

A Turning Point Academy is an adult alternative to the GED to earn a high school diploma.

 

The Academy also offers life skills training classes.

 

Volunteers can tutor/mentor, teach a life skills class, grade papers, file, make copies, assist with technology, and much more.

ATP.GUESTHOUSE_edited.jpg

Love cooking? The Guesthouse provides a hot meal every session that we are open. That's 4 lunches for our guests a week! Our volunteers help our Kitchen Manager preparing food for our friends! If cooking isn't quite your thing but you love the hospitality of a warm home, you could be a volunteer helper in the Guesthouse. Our volunteers help clean, check-in guests, and make sure we show our guests the best experience we can while they are with us.
