Getting involved with the work we do can be done in so many ways. Every bit helps and contributes to making a difference in our community.

donations of all sizes make an impact…

Investing funds in our work may be the simplest way to support Turning Point and there are a variety of methods to do this.  Donations could be made by providing a year of post-dated cheques, you can donate through Canada Helps, via mail or through online banking money transfer.  All funds donated to Turning Point can be designated to specific programs or activities. Just let us know!

We are honoured to receive memorial donations, please email us or call 403.346.8858 for more information.

Our Nightreach team is out 365 days of the year, regardless of the weather (many of our clients have no where to go, even when it’s cold). Nightreach is out in the evening serving our client, meeting them quite literally where they are at. They provide support, clothing, snacks, first aid, a safe walk, a listening ear, and so much more.
Christmas is coming and our Nightreach team will be out at their usual time for Christmas. In the past we have done a 12 days of Christmas where Nightreach has handed out little gifts each evening to the clients they encounter. If you’re interested in donating or sponsoring one of the days, please feel free to call our office at 403.346.8858 or by emailing Aisley.miles@turningpoint-ca.org

Wow! @ojsreddeer spoiled us! Recently we were nominated by community members for a contest that Original Joes Red Deer was having. People were able to nominate a non-profit or volunteers working in the community and we were chosen. Thanks for nominating us and filling our bellies with delicious food!
Did you know @ojsreddeer has a catering menu!? So many of our favourite menu items were available on the catering menu. So if you’re planning an event in the near future, consider checking them out!
