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.

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.

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.

Turning Point has been a wonderful resource for those people who need a hand up and guidance getting their lives back on track. I have only had positive reports from those who have been referred.

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.

The Turning Point Center will be 22 years old on March 26, 2011. During this period of time our membership is bordering on 10,000 people served. They have many programs in the communities addressing and responding to homeless elderly.

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!
