You provide the heart… we provide the training.


Make a Difference

Answer the crisis line from your home, help in the office, become a court advocate, provide childcare.

Our volunteers do everything from direct services to painting our shelter to sending out mail, or working at our thrift store, Changes in downtown Claremont.

Why do I volunteer for Turning Points Network? It is a chance to Repay/Pay It Forward for the times when I needed help and someone was there who made me feel like a whole person again, a person who had plenty of worth.

I enjoy teaching people something they haven’t encountered before, the summer that I taught three of the shelter guests how to quilt was special to me.

Turning Points Network Volunteer

Become a Volunteer

Those interested in volunteering for direct services/crisis line work with TPN must first attend a 30 hour training session to learn about the issues specific to the advocacy work done here at TPN. Sessions are held weeknights and periodically, on weekends.

Those volunteering at the thrift store will undergo specific retail training with the store manager. 

If you have time to help TPN in our work please contact us via email, or call 603-543-0155 for more information. Please download our Statement of Purpose (PDF); our Volunteer Services Description (PDF); and our Volunteer Application (Word) files. You can fill out the application and email it to volunteer@turningpointsnetwork.org, or mail to TPN at 231 School Street, Claremont, NH 03743.

Volunteers who successfully complete training will then work with TPN to develop a schedule that fits with interests and personal schedule. 

We request that crisis line volunteers sign up for 1 shift per month, and make a minimum of a 1 year commitment to volunteering.
