Volunteer

At Turning Point: The Center for Hope and Healing, volunteers support the heart of all activities. Volunteers share their time, talents, and energy to help Turning Point thrive. Together, we promote hope and healing in our community and enhance the lives of the individuals, families and friends living with a serious or chronic physical illness.

Volunteer Opportunities:
