Another tribute, while working through my time, I have learned about patience. We are always busy in this hurry up world. Turning Point has changed my life in a very good way. Many Kudos to George Gomez!

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

George Gomez is without a doubt one of the most caring individuals I have ever met in my life. He helped me, I am a senior, focus on what the real things in life matter. He taught me respect for myself, which I had forgotten, he taught me respect for others and their needs, he reminded me of basic things my parents taught me, however we let these things seem so unnecessary, but without RESPECT, we really have nothing.

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

The Turning Point Center and its programs are for real as are the results they provide.
They offer a fortunate clientele the chance to straighten out their lives by offering a comprehensive support system. The center offers a comprehensive package of support services geared toward getting a person back on track

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

The first time I visited the center, to place my brother, I was impressed with the practical approach administered there. Seeing bus schedules hanging on the office wall told me that these people knew what their clients needed. This was a small thing to an outsider but someone without transportation would find them essential. Later I found the staff took a genuine interest in the success of each client. Everyone is treated as an individual with their needs being accessed and then dealt with.

Please count me as one vote for this organization. Yes I believe the elderly should have a home. What an awful horror it must be to have no home and no family and no support system in old age.

May God have mercy on this nation where such a thing has even happened.

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

It provides a place to sleep for elderly people! What more experience could you imagine wanting

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

1) Give it 10 million dollars. 2) Address the issue of broken families, children outside of marriage, divorce, single mothering, abandonment, and worship of money and sex, etc.... which are the roots of this homeless problem.
