Year in Review
This year our two out-of-state board members moved down to Virginia. Having bought the land beside Turning Point, Ruth & Debbie are currently building their house – a short walk away from where the center will be built. Ruth is working for TPHRC getting the programs organized and the grants submitted. Debbie is offering numerous classes as well as providing healing services at TPHRC’s rented location in Kenbridge VA. All five of our board members volunteered their time and service to the CAP program pilot.
There were six graduates of our “Combating Arthritis Pain” (CAP) program. The amazing success and results of the program has prompted TPHRC to run similar classes during the day and open to ALL (not just arthritis sufferers). Requests were overwhelming from people who heard about CAP and saw the results in their friends and neighbors. We are now “Combating Americas Pain”!

Built the road to the hill top where our building will be and cleared the building area.
Offering healing arts: Massage, Reiki, and more services are being offered at our temporary location.
Covering local community events, including KV 4th of July festival and Crew Family day.
Redesigned and streamlined the Turning Point Healing Headquarters Building.
Planing next year:
Americans in Motion (AIM)
We have a grant submitted to Health and Human Services to encourage physical activity in everyday life. We are very excited about the research project “by the people & for the people”. Stay tuned for more information as it happens!
Building the Headquarters
We hope and plan that 2019 will be the year we build our headquarters in Meherrin VA. It will have a large and a smaller conference room, treatment rooms, and offices. Our intention is to use local facilities and resources as our events and programs mature and grow.
