Turn the Page Center for Urban and Adult Development’s is a 501 C(3) non-profit organization whose philosophy and methodologies are undergirded by biblical and guiding principles which are used to help develop the whole person spiritually, physically, emotionally, and mentally. We believe that as a community of faith, it is our responsibility to reclaim, restore, revive, and resituate those who have been formerly incarcerated. We use a collaboration of researched-based therapy strategies, life coaching, community organizing, spiritual formation, and individual/group dynamics to foster independent living in community.
