Positive places of recovery for people struggling with mental illness.

For 30 years, Turning Point has operated community-based mental health programs in Ventura County. These programs address the full range of human needs, including: a homeless shelter to meet basic physical and safety needs; supported housing to provide decent, affordable housing; and rehabilitation and socialization centers to provide meaningful, productive activities, companionship and a sense of purpose.


Turning Point offers a variety of housing opportunities for Ventura County's mentally challenged homeless community including our homeless veterans. Our program consists of temporary shelters to permanent housing.

Mental Wellness

We take for granted the tangible goods we use everyday, like grooming products, blankets, water, sunscreen and more. Donating socks, shampoo, toothpaste, hats and jackets is the in-kind donation Turning Point needs on a daily basis.

Growing Works

Growing Works is a program, run by Turning Point Foundation, to assist people with mental illness on a path to wellness with job-training, employment and horticultural therapy at a non-profit plan nursery.
