May I say I thank God, for the rejection and trials I encounter from many whom have not believed in this cause “if” only we would realized that many are only one pay-check away from experiencing the same. Turning Point cares when no one else will.

The Client director George Gomez at TPC has been absolutely wonderful! he always responds quickly and provides such detailed information. I have volunteered with TPC . They couldn't have a more seamless and organized volunteer process. I know the Volunteer Manager is super busy but he always takes the time to assist us in scheduling our visits. I would recommend volunteering with the agency without a doubt!
