Healing for our veterans

Our Veterans Transitional Housing Program is for homelessness veterans who may also be suffering from mental illness and in Ventura County.

Veterans Center

Turning Point Foundation's Street Outreach Program showed Veterans are now 20% of the homeless population and 30% of those were suffering from mental illness.
Turning Point felt compelled to take action and expanded our programs to address the individual needs of our veterans bringing together all the social services in Ventura County creating a safety net of support for those that have given so much.

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.

Hope for the Mentally Wellness

The program focuses on empowering members to develop their own Wellness and Recovery plans, develop Center activities and schedule, and take ownership of the Center recovery programming.
