It gives people the tools to completely change their lives and the people around them. We visit Michaels father their every Tuesday and Saturday and we have offered him to come stay with us but he refuses for he likes it there better

I have run across people who had friends there. They were down on their luck and out there doing the wrong things .They moved into this place and got their lives straightened out. Now I hear they have a good life , and are happy.

Turning Point Center connects people with needs such as shelter , food and clothing but also takes part in developing the determination these people need in order for them to once again join mainstream society.

The Turning Point Center and its programs are for real as are the results they provide.
They offer a fortunate clientele the chance to straighten out their lives by offering a comprehensive support system. The center offers a comprehensive package of support services geared toward getting a person back on track

Please count me as one vote for this organization. Yes I believe the elderly should have a home. What an awful horror it must be to have no home and no family and no support system in old age.

May God have mercy on this nation where such a thing has even happened.

Ive been to Turning Point once ( I live across the street). i think it is a good place for the homeless most are elderly and they have a guard at the gate so that the older folks can't go out and get hurt or run over in that busy front street. All around I see good things happening there for the people who need that kind of help.

It is my humble opinion that anyone who is on Yelp and spending money on restaurants, can find a way to pony up a few bucks a month to help those in OUR community that literally do not have enough to eat. Please support this very worthy charity!

I set up a drive on behalf of my advisory at school and I couldn't be happier with Turning Point It is so easy to set up a Food Drive at your office, school, church, etc. and they provide everything you need to get the ball rolling. My students are really happy to deliver the food and I have them doing research on the organization and hunger in Houston and learn about the problems that affect their community everyday.

The people there were great! They knew how to handle spesific situations. They keep you safe-Turning Point has 24 hour security and when one of the residents checks out they must do a alcahol test before returning. They keep it structured based and have a zero tolerance.

This is what these people need a safe and secure place that keeps a tight ship so they can work on their problems.

Restoring Houston’s Historic Cemeteries program has been designed as a collaborative project with local non-profit organizations to facilitate the incorporation of the greater Houston community into this initiative. The goal of this important preservation initiative is to restore and preserve these cemeteries for future generations so that they will always know of the sacrifices, hard work and achievements produced by those interred in these cemeteries.

Without the help from the Turning Point Center - Houston would have lost an opportunity to host an AmeriCorps NCCC team. The scope of this organization goes far beyond the help they gave us. They are truly a shining example of what Houstonians can do when they give back.
