Finding Hope in the
New School Year
The start of school is typically a time of joy, excitement, and the promise of a new start. This year challenged all that.
In the face of unprecedented times and a raging debate about how schools should proceed, Turning Points continued to provide social services and resources to the families that we serve and wanted to do our part to help get students ready to learn!
Our dedicated staff came together to figure out how we could support vulnerable families facing a new challenge.
Late last month, our CUA Community Engagement Team, a team of committed professionals that have done an outstanding job directing, planning, training and engaging the community, executed three separate back to school events. These outdoor drive-by events consisted of handing out needed items to families including the basics (pens, paper, folders) alongside some new necessities (headphones, chargers, flash drives, masks)
