Organizational History

Turning Point, Inc. (TPI) was established as a Nevada-based corporation in December, 1988 as a means of providing an alternative for high quality program evaluations because there were few resources and organizations available in the state to meet the growing demands for comprehensive evaluations (particularly of new initiatives and demonstration projects), and expertise in program evaluation was generally limited to academic research models for evaluation.

TPI has a rich experience in the field of family support and community youth development, community-school partnerships related to educational reform, and community service and service-learning programs, primarily based in the perspective of communities engaging adults and youth to serve and address the milieu of social problems at individual and local levels.

Turning Point, Inc. is a small, for-profit, woman-owned and operated consulting business that provides program evaluation and development services as well as training and technical assistance to organizations and collaborations. Turning Point, Inc. has provided services to projects in the western region of the country (primarily Nevada and California) and has been involved in evaluating a variety of national demonstration projects.
