$2,261 raised by 12 donors

Turning Point Community Programs (TPCP) began in 1976 with a unique vision about offering caring, hope, respect, and support on the path to recovery and mental health. From small beginnings as an agency with only two full-time employees, Turning Point now serves over 10,000 individuals each year operating through 40+ programs in nine California counties.

Many of our employees include folks in recovery who are able to encourage and offer hope to others. Innovation and striving for excellence are hallmarks of Turning Point.

Our staff is as diverse as the members we serve, and we never stop asking, "How can we improve?"

All donations given to TPCP will go towards the John Buck Scholarship fund. The John Buck scholarship was created in honor of Turning Point Community Programs longtime former CEO, John Buck. The scholarship aims to afford an opportunity to those with lived experience to receive higher education. Thank you for your support!


Turning Point Community Programs provides integrated, cost-effective mental health services, employment and housing for adults, children and their families that promote recovery, independence and self-sufficiency.
