Turning Point facilitated two Anti Bullying campaign workshops for our Youth Non-Profit organization. The workshop was interactive and interesting for our youth that are in the Middle and High School age groups. Mrs. King was very helpful in keeping them engaged and due to the content and questions, the workshop lasted far longer than scheduled. Mrs. King was very gracious and patient with our students and expressed an interest in assisting other groups that our youth may be affiliated with, such as church groups, in an effort to bring attention to this serious issue. Turning Point Enterprises swiftly answered our requests and we have referred their contact information to other organizations that serve youth.

Turning Point Enterprises, Inc. was founded in 1998 by Dr. Hayward who shares a legacy of family involvement in supporting the needy. Her father Dr. Joseph Ginyard, of Philadelphia PA, has been an active member of his community as a volunteer and homeless shelter provider for twenty years. He has passed this sense of community responsibility on to JoAnn, who now is compelled by that same sense of urgency in fighting for the needs of others and the comitment to improving the lives of our valued citizens and homeless individuals that are in need of assistance. Turning point provides a variety of supportive service to youth and their families, such as mentoring and coaching, Anti-Bullying education, we have partnered with local High Schools in our area and provide services to students and their parents. We also created a program called Parent University, where we provide services to parents that they have requested, such as computer labs, conflict resolution, blended families, money mgmt, etc. these classes are also bi-lingual . Also we provide substance abuse counseling and we perform clinical evaluations. Our main Goal is to stabilize women, children and individuals, motivate them to obtain permanent and prevent homelessness.

Turning Point Enterprise, Inc. is an exceptional organization that is dedicated to supporting individuals develop self- sufficiency skills and empower their lives. The organization provides excellent life skills programs and community resources to help women and youth live out their best lives. I have witnessed firsthand the amazing influence the organization has had on pregnant mothers, survivors of domestic violence, and women rediscovering their own self- worth achieve goals that once were dreams turned into reality. I am honored to say I observed the progress of women selecting to make career changes, choosing to further their education, and women who formed critical support networks promote their own well-being, and women using financial literacy to eliminate debt, reclaim success in their futures and alleviate cycles of generational poverty.

As a contractor over several years with TPE, I have witnessed and experienced the change that this organization is making for the community as well as for families. Working with TPE has been personally rewarding and I encourage all to become affiliated with Turning Point Enterprises and be an advocate for change.
