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 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.

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.

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!

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.
