Jonette Hardy - Posted September 23, 2016
Jonette Hardy likes playing with cats. As a client of TURN Community Services, she is also able to give back to her community by volunteering at the St. George Animal Shelter’s “cat room.” The cat room may house as many as 30 cats at a time, so keeping it clean for the animals is essential. For more than 13 years, Hardy has arrived every Wednesday morning to help with the cleaning of the animals’ housing, in addition to spending time with the cats and kittens. Click here to read more.

Ten years ago, I came to TURN under some unusual circumstances. I worked for an agency that was getting ready to close with very little notice, leaving numerous individuals without services and employees without jobs.

Mitchell Glassman - Posted September 13, 2016
Mitchell Glassman was 25 years old and had never had an independent job. He was getting services from DSPD and had been in several other help assistance programs, but he was never successful in finding employment. In November of 2015 he came to TURN Community Services from Vocational Rehabilitation hoping that they could help him. Living in the small town of Toquerville, in southern Utah, made his job search extra difficult. In late January, TURN was able to find Mitchell an opportunity in neighboring Hurricane at Muddy Bees Bakery. Click here to read more.
