Turning Point is a community-based 9-10 bed facility for adolescent girls between the ages of 12 and 17. Located in the scenic Columbia River Gorge, Turning Point provides a program that emphasizes person responsibility, cooperation, and diligence. Referrals generally come through the Department of Human Services, and girls placed in the program remain for a period of 10-12 months. For girls who have through the trauma of abuse, loss and abandonment, Turning Point is a place where they can begin to heal and to take a deeper look at what they want from life. Every effort is made to develop a culture within the milieu that also encourages the residents to help and support one another.
