Year in Review


Consolidating Forces

Ruth & Deb House

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.

CAP Success!

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”!

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.

This year Turning Point Healing Retreat Center is celebrating our first #GivingTuesday as an official 501c3 Non-Profit. As we work to begin classes, organize workshops and build the center, we are reaching out to those who believe in us, our vision and our mission.  #GivingTuesday is the opening day of the giving season: a reminder of the “reason for the season.” Thank you for anything you can give!

Turning Point Healing Retreat Center is an educational facility located in rural southern Virginia. Its mission is to provide a wide range of holistic workshops, classes, and modalities for the physical, mental, and emotional empowerment of all participants. Our programs focus on community empowerment and enrichment.  Specific workshops and services focus on health and wellness, veteran’s issues, women’s issues, the aging population, children’s growth and development, and 12 step recovery programs.
