They really came to us and tell us they apprciate that we come and help them and that just makes us feel needed and thanked. I know that they really do apprciate it and that just makes me want to help them even more.

The homeless arent lazy and dont try most of them just need a place to stay while trying to get on their feet and just need a push.

I visited Turning Point Center with my church activity/volunteer group. I'm always happy to help but sometimes am not sure what I can do to help. I noticed how much little odd jobs were apprciated & needed. It gave me ideas and inspiration to find new ways to help out.
Thank You Turning Point

i am with St Theresa's Catholic Church and we came to volunteer on our conformation retreat. I love coming to see different life styles & enviroments that people live in. When I volunteer I love to just have a job to have and know that I helped.

I learned that people who have lost their homes can become institutionalized and lose their ability to pull themselves up and out of their problems.

I learned at Turning Point that homeless people are not actually as the public portrays them to be. Also that a homeless shelter is not always a run down place! It's possible to run a tight ship where everyone contributes and piches in for the group.

Turning Point was a great experiance that emphasized what a great operation Turning Point Center is. It was so clean & structred. It was a good learning experiance and I;m really suprised with what they have here. I really hope they win their contest there is no better place to recieve a needed $5,000.

I came today to volunteer at Turning Point Center I am on a conformation retreat with Saint Theresas Catholic Church (I am in the process of being confirmed) I was surprised by the amount of aid they are getting here at Turning Point. It made me feel very good to come volunteer today. I was able to see that the residents apprciate our presence and I was happy that I was able to make a difference however small.

Today i learned that most of the stereotypes agaisnt homeless people are not always correct. Not all homeless people are lazy or drug addicts, many were just unlucky with the turn in the economy or not able to get a job. I also learned how many resources like Turning Point are available to homeless people. I was surprised by the amount of aid they are getting here at Turning Point.

I came with my chuch to volunteer on a retreat that I missed but I've always wanted to do community service with the homeless and old people. I intend to do a lot more projects for the homeless and more community service to help out Turning Point.
It made me feel great!

The homeless problem is very high. People don't take the time to help out like they should. We all need to help out more and if we help out then there would be less problems with homeless

I learned by visiting The Turning Point Center with my ROC church group that not all homeless people are addicted to a substance. Some are really trying to get back on their feet and Turning Point is a one of a kind place to help them.

I already love volunteering, but being here in this great center (Turning Point) just made me feel so much more comfortable. The people at Turning Point Center were so grateful (and sweet) They each have their own way to contribute to their little community. They are all great people that reside here. I have learned that being homeless is not a rare thing. The Turning Point Center have rescued more then 10,000 people. Being homeless is becoming a bigger issue because of the economy but The Turning Point Center is helping so many with this problem.

"I have been a volunteer with Turning Point Center since the beggining of the year now, and have been happy to help in all of the ways possible to help this incredible organization grow!

The organization that the Founder Isha Salas-Desselle has has built on for the past 20 years is second to none. This charity has helped over 10,000 people get back on their feet.

I would reccomend that state & federal agencies across the US take a look at what Turning Point has achieved and use this model or blueprint to start similar facilities to help the homeless all across the United States
