Our Founder’s Story
What Is U-Turn?
God loves you right where you are — God loves the you that is reading this web site. The broken you. The you that you try to hide.
Whether your struggle is with grief or anxiety, addition or illiteracy, substance abuse or PTSD, it’s okay to not be okay.
The U-Turn Institute promotes healing, hope and happiness by providing a free and confidential environment where anyone is welcome to journey through their stories and seek out their personal “u-turn” within their own lives.
We believe that your story matters. We believe that your story is amazing! We speak the language of hope, and we are here to offer you tools that will help steer your life in a new direction.
U-Turn Stories are real, impactful accounts of situations people just like you have overcome. Watch those powerful stories and see what a “U-Turn” can look like in your life.
U-Turn Events are free and open to anyone inside or outside our community! Events allow us to highlight stories, share with others, and get together with one another.
The U-Turn Institute Difference
Although the Institute is unapologetically a non-denominational ministry, we do not have any agenda other than your healing and success. Whether or not you attend church is of no concern to us. You will never be condemned or made to feel shame for your struggle.
The U-Turn Institute is completely free. You will never be asked to pay for any of our events, resources, or trainings. Donations are always welcome.
The Institute provides a safe environment where you are free to share your struggle and get help without fear of exposure.The U-Turn Institute is not a counseling service.
