Why Donate?

The diagnosis of a serious or chronic physical illness is a stressful, life-altering experience with many fears and uncertainties.  Turning Point is a unique gathering place where area residents and their families and friends can find support and educational information.  It is a place where they can embrace hope and embark on the path to healing.

Turning Point: The Center for Hope and Healing provides the highest-quality social, emotional and psychological support and educational opportunities to entire families available in the Kansas City metropolitan area, free of charge.  The ongoing financial support of our constituents, friends, donors, volunteers and other supporters is needed to make these programs possible.

If you or a family member or friend has ever dealt with a serious physical illness, you know the emotional rollercoaster that ensues.   Your donation will make hope and healing possible.


Did you know Turning Point is unique to our community in the following ways:

  • Turning Point provides a gathering place for the entire family affected by a serious or chronic physical illness – children, adults, families and friends.
  • Turning Point programs are non-disease specific (meaning we serve all physical illnesses) and fill an important gap in health services.
  • Turning Point programs are not like typical support groups.   Specific skills are taught and/or education is provided. 
  • Turning Point programs are led by experienced and respected health professionals who adapt each class to fit the needs of participants.
  • Turning Point programs are offered at no charge.
