My pastor suggested I go to one of the AA meetings held at Turning Point. It was very helpful in helping me as a parent dealing with an adult son struggling with addiction Just setting teaching me not to be a enabler. It also helped me with my feelings of guilt since there had been a divorce when my son was just a child.
Everyone was very kind and helpful.

I first came to the Center last week with a group of us from my school who had a clothing drive. I returned today to deliver some items from my house that we do not use I thought they could use.
I feel comfortable in giving here because i support their cause.

I am a director at Whole Foods. We have been donating breads and other various food items for several years. This organization is worthy place for our donations. I am extremely impressed with the outstanding work they do. Homeless in America is at all time highs and it serves us well to be a partner with Turning Point.

Turning Point Center provides an important habitational and critical training service for those older clients who still have much to contribute to society and gt them on their feet. This client base is often overlooked and at worst, forgotten. Turning Point Center tries to make sure that does not happen.

Friday i spoke with Jeff & asked If I coukld have a large truck to pick up my donation on Monday morning since I had to drive to Arkansas which is a long drive after the pickup. I told him that was why I did not donate to Purple Heart they excpected me to be home from 8-6 well the truck never came and and after several calls George finally came to my rescue and the truck arived after 5 pm. I was upset but George went the extra mile in correcteing the problem and even offer to have someone drive me to Arkansas and/or pay the gas. I understand things go wrong sometimes but George went out of his way to make it up to me.I am glad after all my stuff got deliverd there because I know they can use it. On being on time I give 2 stars but George helped them out so I give them 5 stars.

Myt dealings with George made up for the mis-communicattions

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

They need to be on time for pickups. If they say 10 am they should be here at 10am

Turning Point Center helps people in so many ways --- it is not only a shelter for the homeless, it also assists residents in 'turning' their lives around and becoming happy, productive people once more. Resident/clients become involved in their own recovery and are not only directed, but taken to, specific programs which assist them. Their community outreach includes individuals and other groups, such as houses of worship. The residents I have met are generally very polite and helpful to the public and to each other; they know the meaning of the phrase 'we're all in this together,' and the power that comes from that relationship.
