I was a broken down person. I was living on the street for almost a year. Lost and alone. I had nowhere to go. I lost my job, my income when my case worker talked to George at TPC and he let me move in.

Turning Point Center rescued me from a very trying time in my life. The love they showed me I will never forget especially George who gave me a roof over my head and the path back to my self respect.

When I say the word "homeless", people normally visualise someone sitting on the street in a cardboard box, looking terrible and perhaps even shouting at traffic. This bothers me as I am friends with many homeless people who are very far from this stereotype. It bothers me more as I was one of them.

I have worked all my life at bogus jobs that have taken advantage of me in every way possible. i needed somewhere to stay. i have been in this situation for 3 years. my oldest son has always stayed with his guardian, but he will always be my son, and when i get on my feet he will be with me again and the only people who have been helping me is Turning Point. They even came and piclked me up George has been so good I can thank him and everyone enough.

I became homeless and was looking for any temporary shelter until I could get back to work and reclaim my life. I am not homeless due to addictions or illnesses, I am homeless due to tough choices in life and the economy then I was lucky and found about Turning Point.

I felt like the only person in the world like this I didn’t feel human and I was embaressed to ask for help but thanks to Pastor Ricks I was brought to Turning Point and I have been here ever since. Thanks to Isha and George for giving me the chance to start over.
