How To Get Involved

The Turning Point Center depends on a substantial group of people dedicated to providing a welcoming environment centered around recovery. Whether you’re new to recovery or are longer-term, there is a place for you to lend a helping hand.

What is asked of a volunteer?

We ask that our volunteers provide a welcoming environment.

They help newcomers find answers to their questions and direct people coming in for meetings. Shifts are approx. 3 hours in length during which volunteers are asked to maintain the cleanliness & safety of the center.

I have a special skill I’d like to share

Non-shift volunteer opportunities are also available. This may involve helping staff on specific projects or participating in event committees. We welcome you to teach classes in healthy recovery-related areas.

All volunteers are asked to attend monthly training sessions that take place on the third Wednesday of every month.

I’d like to make a donation

We rely on donations to keep the doors open. If you have items to donate, please contact Tyler Sweeten to discuss. To make a cash donation, please call.

How do I volunteer?

We have an application process & we see where you would best fit. Contact us at 861-3150 for more information.

I’m looking for an internship

Internships are available for college students attending local colleges. A typical internship consists of a minimum of eight hours a week. This would include one volunteer shift which provides experience working with people in recovery. The additional hours would involve project work and/or specific tasks associated with the administration of managing the center. Graduate student internships are available for public administration or similar majors for individuals who are interested in grant writing. All internships are unpaid and must be coordinated with  your school for academic credit. Please contact the Director for further information and to set-up an interview.
