When appropriate, family reunification is a critical element in ending the destitute and harsh realities of street life for homeless people where they have a safe and supportive place to live with. And now you can help by voluntering or donating to this great charity.

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.

Turnig Point is the only place that addreses the elderly homeless. In the past 20 years they have helped thousands of people get back on their feet. The model is being researched by other large cities around the US eager to replicate their success. for more information check their web page at turningpointcenter.org It is a great place to start!

I am a case worker for the state I have 3 clients at Turning Point.
The Turning Point Center does a great job with their residents and I am happy to give my recommendation for their services. George Gomez is epically helpful.

I am a school teacher in the Spring Branch section of Houston One of our campus goals is to help develop the students' character and encourage them to be good citizens of the world. 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.

Turning Point is a needed facility in the Houston area and the staff and volunteers there consistently demonstrate caring, compassion and understanding for the clientele that they serve. Many of our clients have been able to improve their lives with the assistance of Turning Point.

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!

not do anything, other than make more beds available. There is not enough housing like this in Houston.
