Our Vision: TURN Community Services will be the premier provider of quality services for people with disabilities.
Our Mission: TURN dreams into reality.
“Project TURN” was founded in 1973 by a group of parents who were concerned about the lack of services for their adult children with developmental disabilities. The typical option at the time was to place their child in the State institution or allow them to sit at home with few opportunities to learn or participate as a citizen. TURN began by opening Group Homes in Ogden and then Bountiful where people could live in regular homes and take part in typical community activities. From the beginning, TURN was committed to “a life in the community”!
TURN’s reputation as innovative and dependable made us the “go-to” agency as people were moved out of institutions and the State was looking to develop and fund new and individualized services for people in community settings. In addition, a series of strategic merges with other non-profit disability agencies between 1998 and 2011 helped TURN become a statewide provider and expand and diversify our services.
