Turnig Point is the only place that addreses the elderly homeless. In the past 20 years they have helped thousands of people get back on their feet. The model is being researched by other large cities around the US eager to replicate their success. for more information check their web page at turningpointcenter.org It is a great place to start!

I called and spoke with Jeff and they were very grateful that I thought of them. I was very surprised the first thing you see when you enter is a beautiful statue of an Angel. It looks more like a retirement home rather than a shelter. I will plan to come back and volunteer soon.

Everyone has a need at some point in their life for services and not very many focuses on elderly people who are the lost and forgotten souls. Turning Point serves the homeless and the community outstanding.

Turning Point takes homless people off the streets and provides a structured environment that rehabilitates them back into society.

Having worked at other shelters (somewhat similar) I can compare and say that Turning Point is very well run and the staff are consistently making efforts to make it a better place for its residents

It is a well maintained facility and people that I have interacted with always speak well of the facility and of the founder and Director, Isha. Everyone at Turning Point, from the guard at the gate to the office staff and residents that I meet, have been welcoming, cheerful and helpful.

I have been volunteering at Turning Point Center going on a year now support their efforts. This is kind place that helps individuals that society has forgotten seniors 50 and up. Too old for the work force and to young to get their social security.

From the moment we arrived we were very immpressed. This organization is so efficient and not only meets peoples immediate needs, but helps them live. It then helps them establish a new way of living and gets them equipped to become independent.
