In partnership with Teen Challenge International, is Putnam County's community outreach that addresses drug and alcohol addiction problems that plague our county. Every individual is affected in some way or another. Maybe you have a friend, co-worker, or family member who is suffering from an addiction. Or... maybe it's you. Maybe someone you know has been the victim of a crime such as robbery, home invasion, domestic violence, loss of income, loss of property, and even loss of life. U-Turn addresses drug & alcohol prevention, awareness, and offers referrals and help, and most of all hope for those in need.
Now in it's eighth year, U-Turn has garnered the support of city, county, and state officials. Let's help direct our community's future.
Is a ministry that connects people in need with people who want to help through financial assistance, referrals, and education. In addition to crisis assistance, the ministry connects trained volunteer mentors with people who are committed to making difficult life changes to improve their lives.
Simply defined, Community Outreach is the practice of conducting local public awareness activities through targeted community interaction. Community Outreach activities are those efforts that can directly affect the lives of the people in our local neighborhood. Successful Community Outreach focuses on the issue's relevance to the community and acknowledge the community's challenges in addressing it.
