why we’re here 


Turning Point Transitional Services Inc.  is a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit organization founded in 2012 as a response to discovering homelessness amongst young adults. Through research it was quickly discovered that many of the homeless youths were then from the dependency system. At age 18 they age out of the foster care system. Without a marketable skill or education they quickly became homeless and end up either incarcerated or on the streets. We began to cultivate our organization to help them navigate through life’s challenges by providing independent living skills training, support and mentoring. 

We serve the youth of Broward county that are between the ages of 18-23 and have aged out of the foster care system. We believe that it should be the responsibility of the community, individuals and businesses to participate in actions that support and educate its citizens that are marginalized..                                                

Collaboration is the key to our success as an organization. With the collected resources of businesses, agencies and individuals we make a difference in the lives of others. Everyone, mentors, volunteers and donors plays a key role in the development and stability of the  lives we touch. 

We have created distinctive programs that closes the gaps in education, health, employment and home economics that are characteristically inadequate in this population. We promote and extend the necessary education to build and maintain their confidence in making better life choices. 

We are a small organization, but we play a significant role in Turning lives around, strengthening family values, lessoning crime and building stronger communities. Together we play our role in filling colleges and emptying jails.

Bridging the gaps in Education, employment, home econmics and more


Parenting

 

Nurturing parenting skills are an alternative to abusive and neglecting parenting and child-rearing practices.  This program is sensitive to the needs of young parents and teaches them how to properly care for and nurture both themselves and their children.  It explores and educates parents on the effects of positive parenting in a family. The long-term goals are to reduce the cycles of intergenerational abuse.

 

Career Oppertunities

We are broadening career choices of youths and opening paths to professions that are often overlooked and under enrolled by minorities. A tour and introduction to the Broward Fire Academy revealed opportunities for men and women to professions that provides a sense of pride while protecting lives, property and the environment.             

Independence Drive

Independence Drive offers eligible youths in transition to independence an opportunity to gain a Florida Driver’s License. Drivers education is often a forgotten milestone in the life of a young adult or teen in foster care. This program is streamlined making the application and process simple and at no cost to the youths.
