Turning Point Center for Women and Children

Organization: Salvation Army NW - National Capital Area Command

A two-year transitional housing program for young mothers with children to help them break free from chronic homelessness and unemployment. Turning Point Center helps them find stability through shelter, and self-sufficiency through life skills training.

Case management and counseling services help keep them on course, but intensive classes—in budgeting, parenting, and housekeeping, as well as building healthy relationships and preparing for jobs—help them move ahead.

By living in one of the 26 apartments available, single mothers and their children are able to take advantage of Turning Point’s resources and staff expertise. The goal is to prepare them for independent living. These include:
- case management with the development of a Family Action Plan
- Independent Living Skills training
- Out of Poverty curriculum instruction
- individual and group counseling;
- participation in employment, job training, or education programs
