Turning Point offers support for those who want to recover. Volunteers at the center provide Peer-to-Peer support by talking one on one with visitors. The primary role of Peer-2-Peer support volunteer is to be welcoming, empathetic and a good listener. By engaging people, asking questions and making them feel welcome, we succeed in being a source of comfort and support to anyone who wants or needs it.
