Ive been to Turning Point once ( I live across the street). i think it is a good place for the homeless most are elderly and they have a guard at the gate so that the older folks can't go out and get hurt or run over in that busy front street. All around I see good things happening there for the people who need that kind of help.

I know they have been helping people there for many years and I have even seen them on channel 2 and 13 before for the good work they do. I think they are a good neighbor in or area doing good work.

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

when the parking lot gets full to use the other parking ;lot to their property on the side.

It is my humble opinion that anyone who is on Yelp and spending money on restaurants, can find a way to pony up a few bucks a month to help those in OUR community that literally do not have enough to eat. Please support this very worthy charity!

I set up a drive on behalf of my advisory at school and I couldn't be happier with Turning Point It is so easy to set up a Food Drive at your office, school, church, etc. and they provide everything you need to get the ball rolling. My students are really happy to deliver the food and I have them doing research on the organization and hunger in Houston and learn about the problems that affect their community everyday.

They have an orientation program held once in a blue moon. At first they're quick to get you involved, but then they just fall off the radar. Even after following up asking for a chance to volunteer, they don't respond...

The people there were great! They knew how to handle spesific situations. They keep you safe-Turning Point has 24 hour security and when one of the residents checks out they must do a alcahol test before returning. They keep it structured based and have a zero tolerance.

This is what these people need a safe and secure place that keeps a tight ship so they can work on their problems.

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

One walk in and you can see they care for the people just as they care for their facility.

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

lower their energy bills so they can use the savings for other important issues.

Great organization that provides tons of ways for volunteers to use their unique talents while also greatly benefiting the community.

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

we picked up some beatiful oak doors that Turning Point Center was not able to use.

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

continue what they already do :)
