Join the “TURN Family” by donating $10 or more during #LoveUTGiveUT, March 1st-30th at https://loveutgiveut.razoo.com/story/Turn-Community-Services!!! It takes a village and we need your help! These are the amazing things you’ll be a part of…

  • Providing critical and innovative services for people with intellectual disabilities including autism, Down syndrome, cerebral palsy, traumatic brain injury, etc.
  • Serving some of the most socially and economically vulnerable people in Utah’s population.
  • Continuing TURN’s legacy of embracing people with disabilities into our communities. Founded in 1973 by parents of children with disabilities who were seeking community alternatives to institutionalization, TURN’s services enable people to be as independent and engaged in their communities of choice, a human right everyone deserves. We serve more that 760 people daily in 15 counties throughout Utah!
  • Providing a wide variety of quality services to fit the individual needs of each participant. These include residential services, employment services, day programs emphasizing education, art, and health, respite summer camps, counseling services, family support, respite care, and host homes.
  • Helping “TURN Dreams into Reality”. We accomplish our mission by supporting people with disabilities to live, work, learn, and play in their communities.

Join the “TURN Family” and help us continue our work!

What do YOU do with $10? Buy lunch? Three lattes? Or hot chocolates if you prefer? 😉 There are so many things that many of us drop ten dollars on without thinking about it! What if you could make a difference with that $10?! BE a part of something BIGGER?! What if you could give someone else the chance to experience everyday things that you and I take for granted, like going swimming with friends, enjoying a dinner that you learned to make by yourself, finding and retaining a job that you enjoy, learn to manage your life as independently as possible, finding things to do that you enjoy like music, art, sports, and dancing!, becoming more healthy and feeling good about yourself, being be part of a larger community where you can socialize and find family when you might not have any, maybe even get married?! Today you can! With just $10 you can make a difference in the life of someone with an intellectual disability. TURN Community Services provides supports so people can live, play work and learn in their own communities. Please help by giving TURN a #LoveUTGiveUT “Vote” of $10 and make a difference in someones life, TODAY!!! Thanks!!! https://loveutgiveut.razoo.com/us/story/Turn-Community-Services
