A Turning Point employee shares what a former client said to her at our recent Denim Day display in April at the Columbus Learning Center.
“Today, a woman stopped by and was looking at our brochures and information. I encouraged her to take a Denim Day button, and she said “I remember you. I came to Turning Point.” I had worked with her at shelter while I was case manager. She updated me on how her life has changed since I last saw her. At the time she was at shelter, she spoke very limited English. She has since become proficient with English. She also has a good job and volunteers in the community. This woman took some of our Tap that App brochures for her teenage daughter and her daughter’s friends. She said that the information in the brochures is very important and that all teens should have this information. She also told me that she does not take anything for granted. She said that one day you have everything and the next day it can be taken away. I expressed to her how far she has come since I first met her. It is rare that we get to see the outcomes of our clients, and I am thankful to have seen this former client today.”
