Program overview

River Haven is home to a group of previously homeless county residents. They have created a self-sustaining tent community where their basic needs can be met in a stable, sanitary environment free of violence, drugs and alcohol until they are able to access housing. As the official sponsor of this group, Turning Point provides administrative and supportive services to ensure the ongoing success of this unique project.

As a member of a community, he has had to learn to solve problems with words. Sandy and Dan now have jobs and are saving for an apartment.
