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.
