Turning Point Women’s Reentry SAFE Housing
Turning Point is dedicated to the support of women marginalized by addiction, trauma, criminality, incarceration, poverty, racism, sexism, homelessness, and violence. In 2020, Turning Point opened its first home for women exiting prison and jail in Los Angeles County. Our reentry home is based on the model established by Susan Burton at A New Way of Life (ANWOL) in 1998. Turning Point is a member of ANWOL’s SAFE (Sisterhood Alliance for Freedom and Equality) Housing Network. We are so excited to be part of the SAFE Housing Network and to support the successful reentry and healing of women and encourage them to release their intellect and power.
This is how we help residents transition back into society:
We provide an alcohol and drug-free environment.
We help women to obtain their California Identification Card, Social Security Card, apply for Government Public Assistance and Medi-Cal benefits.
We encourage women to obtain a sponsor and participate in 12-step meetings.
We ask women their goals so we can help them achieve them.
We help women write their resume and prepare them for job interviews.
We collaborate with local employment centers on behalf of women.
We assist women with enrolling in school.
Women can stay at Turning Point until they are ready for independent living.
We assist women in searching for permanent housing.
