Life Center

TouchPointe Family Life Center has grown out of the need for a positive alternative environment for men and women who desire change in their lives. The Life Center fosters a positive environment where creativity, fellowship and fun can take place in the midst of healthy relationships. In the midst of poverty, addiction and unhealthy relationships, we aim to provide a "new playground" with "new playmates."

Relational Healing


The Relational Healing resources are from the Bethesda Family Services Foundation in Lewisburg, PA.  The material used by TouchPointe has been adapted from the materials written by Dominic P. Herbst.  The materials are designed to help men and women heal emotional wounds.  The tendency is to treat the symptoms of a problem, but often the individual does not get to the “root cause” of the issue.  

The individual is asked to complete the Relational Healing Journal as they cover the material with a TouchPointe volunteer.  This program is typically one-on-one or with a very small group of men or small group of women.  It is usually about 8 – 1 ½ hour sessions over a two to three month period.

This is not a substitute for professional counseling.  TouchPointe volunteers will often make referrals to licensed counselors or therapists.
