What clients say.
“Turning Point’s Ventura clubhouse gave me a second chance at life. The staff helped me believe I could have a better life and participate fully in society. They encouraged me to work and to live independently and they were true to the idea of self-help. Through counseling and group activities, I learned how to communicate with the outside world. The staff taught me to ask for what I needed.
