Turning Point Day Center


Our Mission

The plight of the homeless in Atlantic City is well known by those who live, work, provide social services, and invest and operate businesses in Atlantic City. The homeless are currently serviced by a number of agencies and ministries in Atlantic City including the Atlantic City Rescue Mission, various churches, Sister Jean's Kitchen, Jewish Family Services and others.

The one service that is lacking, is to meet a great need for this population of our city to provide a place for them to spend productive time during the day between the hours of 8:00 am and 5:00 pm.

In order to provide a more holistic approach to meet the needs of this at-risk population and to assist them in returning to society as productive citizens, we bring to the city of Atlantic City, the Turning Point Day Center.
