Sign up for Weekly Tips for Families
TouchPointe Marriage & Family Resources is a non-profit corporation committed to strengthening the quality of personal and family life by providing emotional and relational support through educational facilitators and trained coaches.
We are not therapists or professional counselors, but trained volunteers who want to come along side families to give them support. Many participants benefit from one-on-one coaching to help hone their communication skills. TouchPointe volunteers typically suggest five, two hour sessions at a low cost of $10 per session for confidential and personal coaching.
TouchPointe will often serve as a "First Responder" in a crisis situation.
After an initial assessment, referrals to professional counselors/therapists
will often be made.
TouchPointe works closely with other Knox County agencies to provide needed resources for men and women who have a "less than perfect" work record. "Getting Ahead in a Just Gettin' by World" is a program offered to men and women who are facing situational or generational poverty and who are willing and capable to attain self-sufficiency.
TouchPointe Family Life Center is located at 120 S. Norton St. in Mount Vernon, Oh. It has grown out of the need for a positive alternative environment for adult men and women who have been affected with drug and alcohol issues and who desire change. Trained "Allies" are assigned to selected men and women to provide a support system. Narcotics Anonymous meets every Saturday at noon at the Center. A variety of activities take place at the Center. Call Cheyenne, the Life Center Director at 740-485-5408 for more details.
