Turning Point saves lives. Our progams reduce homelessness, hospitalizations and incarcerations. You can help!

When you give to Turning Point your dollars reach children, families, and adults in six California counties who are working hard to overcome their mental illness.

How can your one-time donation make a difference?


  • one month bus pass
  • week of groceries
  • tank of gas
  • set of pots/pans or dishes


  • bedding for a formerly homeless person moving into their first apartment
  • school supplies and a backpack


  • pair of new shoes
  • winter coat
  • basic toiletries (shampoo / conditioner / soap / toothpaste / toilet paper)
  • Credit check for an apartment rental application
  • Linens

For our Children's Programs clients:

  • $50 - would provide needed hygiene supplies for 10 at-risk and foster youth
  • $100 - will help fund 50 free developmental screenings for Sacramento County infants and toddlers
  • $500 - will provide needed school supplies for many foster youth.

Remember, Turning Point offers a path to mental health while saving taxpayer money. Reduced days of hospitalization, incarceration and homelessness are achieved through our programs. Housing and stability within the community are achieved at less than 16% of the cost of hospitalization or incarceration.
