I have personaly recieved help from the Turning Point Center 1) They gave me a place to stay when no one else would 2)They have not only helped me get my medical benifits but they take me to and from my appointments. 3)They provide nutritios hot meals 3 times a day everyday 4) The staff here really care about you and helping you get back on your feet no other place I have come in contact with comes close to all that Turning Point does.

I was a resident in the program Since leaving I have done exactly what they taught me and I will never be homless again because I now have the right mental frame not to ever do drugs again.

I called and spoke with Jeff and they were very grateful that I thought of them. I was very surprised the first thing you see when you enter is a beautiful statue of an Angel. It looks more like a retirement home rather than a shelter. I will plan to come back and volunteer soon.

Another tribute, while working through my time, I have learned about patience. We are always busy in this hurry up world. Turning Point has changed my life in a very good way. Many Kudos to George Gomez!

Everyone has a need at some point in their life for services and not very many focuses on elderly people who are the lost and forgotten souls. Turning Point serves the homeless and the community outstanding.

Having worked at other shelters (somewhat similar) I can compare and say that Turning Point is very well run and the staff are consistently making efforts to make it a better place for its residents
