Connecting with the homeless on a respectful yet determined level without pressuring them into programs or service, simply offering and guiding and allowing them to take what they need, from a meal to wheelchair repair to a shower or counseling, the Turning Point staff and volunteers are making a difference in the lives of some of the neediest and least likely to help themselves people around. Once a month volunteers reach out into the heart of Houston and offer assistance to any who will accept. Volunteers are always needed!

I work for Harris County TX as a case worker and have took notice during my visits here on how the center runs. The people they serve here also contribute to the upkeep and the daily chores. I know it distills a sense of community and at the same time gives the individual self esteem.
The service they provide goes way beyond just shelter and food.

It was amazing to see how excited our students were after spending a afternoon with the people living at Turning Point. Thank you for givig us the tour and the story behind the shelter and the amazing woman who founded it.

As a case worker with more than one client at Turning Point I can attest to the program and the staff in regards to this being a one of a kind place that assists elderly homeless people in Houston and the surrounding counties. The clients here receive extensive resources and services.

We have known of Turning Point and the level of its services for many years. The caseworkers at COMPASS view it as an excellent housing option for our homeless clients with disabilities. It has always been my impression that it is well run, that Mr. Lopez is very dedicated, and that the residents are happy to be there. On another note, my daughter's middle school does community service there from time to time, and she and the other students are also impressed. And it is not easy to impress a middle schooler!
