“…Caught in a highly abusive relationship it seemed all doors were closed…Turning point was the hand that pulled me out, gave me my strength back, showed me the path and gave me my life back. Today I am leading a very happy peaceful life, raising two normal healthy kids and everyday that passes by I am grateful. "


“I think it’s a great place to find hardcore knowledge and amazing stories with much truth. A secure space to meet and really open up and relate with other youth…”


“Thanks to Turning Point's vision of serving ALL Muslims ….I know when I reach there I will always be greeted with a warm smile, be understood and receive the spiritual support I need,…For the first time I feel as though I can trust somebody that means the world to me.”
