Youth Advocacy Programs

Turning Pointe advocates work with youth and their families to ensure that they have access to the support, resources, or services that they need.

Individual advocacy services include:

  • Crisis intervention
  • Educational advocacy
  • Legal help
  • Safety planning

Group programming utilizes a trauma-informed approach to provide youth with a responsive healing and learning environment where they can grow alongside their peers. See our programs below for current offerings.
