Thank you for your interest in volunteering for Turning Point Ministries. Please join us as we work @ 200 and 209 N. Walnut. These homes are located in Heritage Village. Heritage Village is between Thatcher and Hurd on the west side of Fretz. (between Danforth and Second)
Please complete and sign a liability waiver form prior to volunteering. Liability waivers can be printed from our website https://turningpointoklahoma.org/volunteer-forms/ or we will have copies available at the construction site. Turning Point will evaluate the abilities and competency of all volunteers and assign appropriate, safe activities as availability and conditions permit. Volunteers under the age of 14 may not work on Turning Point construction sites in accordance with state and federal laws and regulations. Volunteers under 18 must present a Waiver of Liability form signed by a parent or legal guardian and must be accompanied by a parent, guardian or an adult approved by a parent or guardian when volunteering with Turning Point. There are very limited opportunities for volunteers under 16. The Turning Point volunteer coordinator will work with youth group leaders to provide opportunities for safe, meaningful participation in appropriate activities and settings that support the Turning Point mission. There is no maximum age for Turning Point volunteers. Please be sure to sign in when you get to the site. If you have some work gloves, please wear them. Thank you in advance for helping us provide affordable housing in Edmond! This is a construction site, with many possible hazards. Our volunteer’s safety is important to us, so please follow the safety guidelines below to ensure a safe working environment. Turning Point Ministries is not responsible for accidents.
Work at your own risk.
Eye protection is required when exposed to hazards from flying particles. Protective helmets are required when working in areas where there is a potential for injury to the head from falling objects. Ear protection is required when operating noisy equipment. Sandals or flip flops are not allowed. Use proper posture when lifting heavy objects. You must receive training from the Turning Point supervisor prior to using power equipment. Exercise proper lifting technique when lifting to avoid injury.

Construction schedules are difficult to predict, and there is a slight possibility that our schedule will change and we will not have work available for volunteers as we had planned. In the event that this happens, we will let those signed up know of the cancelation via e-mail.
