Turning Point has operated community-based mental health programs in Ventura County for over 30 years. Their programs address the full range of personal needs, including a homeless shelter to meet necessary physical and safety requirements, supported housing to provide decent, affordable housing and rehabilitation and socialization centers to provide meaningful, productive activities, companionship and a sense of purpose.

Because of the myths and stigmas attached to mental illness, many people struggle with its effects alone and unaware that their symptoms can be controlled by medication and the functional problems they experience can be addressed through rehabilitation and support services. We work with our clients to reverse the devastating effects of their illnesses, such as job loss, homelessness, isolation, addiction, incarceration, and even thoughts of suicide.

Healing towards Mental Wellness

Our programs focus on empowering members and to help them develop their own Wellness and Recovery plans, participate in Center activities and schedule, and take ownership of the Center recovery programming.

Haven – A Place to call Home

Homeless to Home/Health Navigator/Street Outreach programs reach out into the community where the homeless are. Our Place Safe Haven is the first stop on the road to recovery for the homeless with mental illness.

Hope for our Veterans

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