First thing I noticed was how clean Turning Point Center was (Pride in Ownership). Giving people hope by allowing them to contribute to their growth.

I arrived at TPC in Dec 2007. I was a broken down person. I was at Spring Branch Hospital lost and alone. I had no where to go lost job, income. I had no place to live when my case worker called TPC and George Gomez told her to bring her on.

My health wasn'nt good I meet George the next day. Before ariving my self esteem was gone & my life skills were not working. George & TPC helped me through this. Today I can use my medical skills & the skills TPC has taught me to help others.

I throught the help of George at TPC now have my SSI I work and pay my own food and bills and most importantly I HAVE REGAINED MY SELF ESTEEM! i THANK GOD FOR TURNING POINT CENTER EVERYDAY.

I was asked to place a bid on some plumbing work at Turning Point Center in January 2011 I was amazed at the facility how clean and well maitained it was kept. I was truelly impressed with how the residents all had a position or job in keeping the place up. I never imagined a homeless shelter could be so well organized. This facility should be reconized for the outstanding work they are doing helping our cities homeless senior citizens.

Turning point Center is a safe & secure alternative to being on the streets. Even though the population is comprised of people with many problems it is a safe haven and all the residents contribute to the maintance and daily upkeep of the Center.
