Restoring Houston’s Historic Cemeteries program has been designed as a collaborative project with local non-profit organizations to facilitate the incorporation of the greater Houston community into this initiative. The goal of this important preservation initiative is to restore and preserve these cemeteries for future generations so that they will always know of the sacrifices, hard work and achievements produced by those interred in these cemeteries.

Without the help from the Turning Point Center - Houston would have lost an opportunity to host an AmeriCorps NCCC team. The scope of this organization goes far beyond the help they gave us. They are truly a shining example of what Houstonians can do when they give back.

The Turning Point Center hosted an AmeriCorps NCCC team in the spring of 2011. Because of generous support of the Turning Point this team was able to assist three historic African - American cemeteries. Without their support this initiative would not been able to host the AmeriCorps team. We cannot thank the Turning Point Center enough.

My dad is 77, he's on oxygen, in a wheelchair, and he can't take care of himself anymore But, boy, when it's dinnertime, he's there. It's the high point of his day. Turning Point provides more then just his basic needs they have given him self esteem and I am so thankful for all they do for him.

For a long time, I loved this organization. However, I feel that this organization doesn't get around to doing as much as they could - they only help people 50 and up WHY NOT THE OTHERS? and my time is better spent else where. A lot of times, I felt like some people were scared to voice their opinions because of the atmosphere of the organization... I don't mean to be rude or put down the organization, merely to voice my opinion.

I think they could do more

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

Help all homeless not just seniors

We were told about this wonderful place Turning Point this past week. Process was very friendly and easy we were giving all paperworks prior to today and today we met with the client service manager. Turning Point also helped in so much in this process, which took a lot of pressure off my shoulders. When we had question George was very informative and answered all of my questions We also want to volunteer there!!!!!!!
