Turning Point Center is a great example of how we should be helping others in our community. Not only do they help those that come to their organization, they help other people in the Houston community as they drop off food for the homeless still living on the street.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

The progress I have seen with the patients I work with who live there have been very encouraging.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Allow them to receive the funding they seek and need.

Turning Point Center is a wonderful place for men and women who are experiencing being homeless in Houston. This full service agency really cares about their clients and places a great deal of effort into assisting those in our society who have no home of their own.

The shelter does more than just provide a roof over their client's heads. It actually provides comprehensive case management, and housing support for those who qualify. Sometimes people are down on their luck and just need a little help and direction. Their mission is to eradicate homelessness in the Houston area.

Greetings I am a healthcare service provider that frequents the Turning Point Center to assist some resident on a weekly basis. During my time visiting here, I have seen the community efforts this facility has done and the multiple benefits the residents receive. I believe this place is a distinct opportunity for change, revitalization, refreshment, support, friendship, and family for lots of the people.

It is my desire to see the wonderful things continue or if possible even become greater. It is a salvation for most and restoration for others. Please continue the great works.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

For Barbara and Bobby, there was little choice. Without some help, she said, they wouldn't have made it. Turning Point Center has helped my clients in more ways then one. On top of the financial issue, there's a whole dignity issue, These people are in their so-called golden years, and they don't want to admit they're having a tough time getting food. Without Turning Point Barbara and Bobby would not have the services that The Turning Point has been providing.


I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

The dedicated founder and director who provide the services for the people in crisis.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Have the opportunity to make more beds available.

Nonprofit communicators have waaaaay too much to do.

One option is to pretend like your supporters don't want to get email from you, or don't use Facebook, or don't care if they ever get a thank-you letter or an explanation of the progress their money helped bring about.

Another option is to pray to the To-Do List Fairies to sprinkle some magic dust that cuts your to-do list in half overnight.

Or you could stop dreaming, and do what really works: Getting the help you need to get it all done!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Talk about what your organization does.
