I came to stay at Turning Point Center on December 23, 2010 when I had no where to go and my family wouldn't help and I was very very lost. My boy friend had been living here and I knew it to be a nice place to live. So just when I needed the help The Turning Point Center was there for me when I thoguht I would have been living the Street.

I arrived at TPC December of 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 was nothing, and I had no place to live. My case worker called TPS and George told her to bring me on. My health wasn't good. I met George the next day. My self-esteem was gone, my life skills were not working. George helped me through this. Today I can use my medical skills to help others the way they have taught me. I got my SSDI with George's help. I pay rent now, can buy my own food, and my self-esteem is back. Thank God for Turning Point.

I was here back in 97 and I didn't know what I was going to do. George took me in and we made a plan. I wasn't on any drugs, I was just down on my luck. I stayed here for about 5 months until I found a good job and saved money for my own apartment. God bless Turning Point, without them I would still be lost.

I believe basically i am continuing to grow and branch out emotionally on my biggest issue which is chemical dependancy (Alcoholism). I yearn to seek more knowledge and develop more skills and techniques to conquer and battle the most baffling part of my disease.

Before I got to Turning Point my course had been darkened by 9 personal care homes. This was as a result of my dependence emotionally and financially on my loved ones, in-laws, friends, and even my pets. I became a 'dropped off' and then a 'no show' over 15 times from hospitalizations. After the Open-and-free-shelter, I realized the next option would be of my own merit. After making this resolution, and a strong foundation with my Maker, my quest began here. As with many of my positive experiences in my life, no one knows my past. Being here only a few days more than a month seems that most everybody respects m, as I have regained it for myself. These folks have already extended hands for volunteers in 'office 28' (30 hours a week). This is where I have regained confidence, responsibility, and the ability to show-up. I am now once again a fierce worker and feel needed.
