I am not a rich guy, but this is where my monthly charity check goes to. I figure, if I am carrying a few extra pounds, that means I have enough money to share with those that do not have enough to eat.

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

It is an amazing place that provides much needed support to elderly people who are in need of the basics like food and shelter. Being homeless is a process to get back to being productive people in society and Turning Point is making good on their promise to serve.

urge other to contribute

As we prepare to eat another family meal focused on abundance,it is important to remember that not everyone is able to have a table filled with food and family. If you are able, this is a very worthwhile local charity that uses most of your donation to feed the hungry.Every dollar donated goes towards feeding Houston's homeless.

Our family has been donatinfg as we can to Turning Point and we highly reccomened this charity. Please consider this charity for your charitable contributions.And remember that abundance is not about accumulating stuff-it is about realizing that we all have wealth in our health,family and friends.

Upon arriving we were welcomed by Jeff, the volunteer coordinator, and thanked us for giving our time. He quickly outlined the tasks for our shift and split us into groups. Everything was well planned and organized, our team quickly became a well-oiled sorting and packing machine. I've done some other service projects where I've felt volunteers were under-utilized or projects were poorly planned, but not here by the end of my shift I felt like I had made an impact, a small one, but an impact all the same.

Turning Point gets a A for organization!
