Touch Point Connection, a 501(c) 3 organization, has completed its five-year pilot program. With a deep sense of gratitude for those who supported us; in awe of the resilient and inspiring adolescents we coached; and having completed our work — Touch Point Connection is now closed.

This website has been revised to archive and share our work and learning — at no cost to any user — to generate more awareness about the beneficial outcomes that come from coaching conversations and youth.

Your inquiries will be monitored and supported by Howie Adams D.M.D., NCC, PCC.

Thank you.
