Turning Point has turned my life around. When I came here just a year ago, I was in shambles in need of financial rehabilitation. With their help, I have my own apartment, have enabled a better awareness of self and have the proverbial tools I need not only to create a better home-based environment for my family, but by allowing me to participate in the job training program to help me further my career endeavors. What more can a woman ask for! I thank god that TPCS Inc helped me get my life back on track and with them in my corner I am sill a positive work in progress.
