Turning Point Recovery Society is thrilled to announce that construction on our new 9-bed womenís house on the North Shore has begun! Thank you to the dignitaries, fellow social service providers and our many friends and supporters on the North Shore for attending our Ground Breaking Ceremony on December 18th. A very special thank you also to Wendy Wong for sharing her especially compelling message and heartwarming story with our audience.

The site at 2670 Lloyd Avenue was identified as the preferred location, primarily due to its tranquil setting and proximity to community services and amenities. This house will be the only one of its kind on the North Shore and will enable women seeking help with drug and alcohol addiction to stay in their home community close to family, friends and other support networks.

The home is approximately 4,200 sq.ft., which includes a two-car garage. It will be licensed under the Community Care and Assisted Living Act and staffed on a 24/7 basis. The home can accommodate a maximum of nine women at any given time (plus a staff member). Priority placement will be given to women on the North Shore.

The house will opening in the spring of 2014. Turning Point has just learned that we have been selected as the charity of choice for the North Shore Mayor's Golf Tournament in May, 2014. Please check back soon for more details.
