You are invited to see how a local organization is directly helping homeless people in Ventura.  For over 28 years, Turning Point has been the only non-profit in Ventura County for people who are struggling with mental illness, including those who are homeless and veterans.

There’s a tour on October 3rd at Noon to 1PM, at Turning Point’s Our Place Safe Haven, at 536 E. Thompson in Ventura. You’ll hear about how Turning Point is helping men and women to overcome homelessness by providing a safe place to stay, help with getting financial assistance, hot meals, medical help and more. We’re the largest provider of help for the homeless and mentally ill in Ventura County.

Besides offering a home and hot meals, Our Place Safe Haven is also open to the homeless community, offering a place for doing laundry, taking showers, phone service, mail delivery, and more. We help those who are struggling with mental illness to access help, get assistance in navigating the health system, and get access to benefits. We’ve been able to reduce reliance on local emergency rooms by 90%, saving local taxpayers thousands of dollars.

Above Our Place, you’ll also see Stephenson’s Place, which is permanent supportive housing for men and women who have been homeless. Here, they can live as long as they like, in a stable, caring community, with the assistance and support they need to help overcome their challenges.

It’s just a one hour tour, it’s free, and there will be a light lunch.

We hope you can join us.

Because space is limited, I know you don’t want to miss this tour!

Thank you for your support!
