Greetings,
I just wanted to share the wonderful collaborative experiences that I have had with Turning Point. I have known George Gomez for several years in this field and he has worked tirelessly with our YMCA Community Services Program to help coordinate services for at risk and homeless individuals. Turning Point is a great resouce in our Houston community. Turning Point's staff has always been responsive to needs, kind, friendly and very, very supportive to those at risk.
I can't say enough about the about of incredible support that the YMCA Community Services program has received from this organization.

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

yes, see above.

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

none.

Turning Point Center epitomizes the concept of helping those who sometimes can not help themselves. The staff is dedicated and extremely competent. The director (Mr. Gomez) is a true humanitarian and lives to serve his fellow man. I have seen the work that takes place there and emphatically endorse this facility and the dedicated staff. One of the best run non-profit organizations I have ever had the pleasure of visiting.

I have been volunteering with Turning Point Center in a variety of capacities for years. I have served lunch on Xmas every year for the past 6 years. Our congregation runs their organic garden. It is a remakable center with vision and they make a differnce in the lives of their residents.

Isha has created a very unique shelter for the aging homeless community. They deserve major kudos for all they do.

I would have the residents learn to tend their own garden
