Veterans Assistance

The Yellow Ribbon Veterans Program

Turning Points is a leader in providing services for homeless veterans and their families in Manatee County. Through various grants, we work with our partners to provide housing, shelter and supportive services to these individuals and families who have sacrificed so much for our country.

The Yellow Ribbon Veterans Program focuses on securing and maintaining housing for Veterans who are currently homeless or would be homeless without this assistance. It provides temporary financial assistance and services to help persons gain housing stability. The goal is for Veterans in this program to remain stably housed after this temporary assistance ends.

    his place is great for people who need help or are going through rough times, they can help with food stamps, clothing, showers, food (to take home for those who have a home, or a meal Mon-Fri), they have computers available to use, they also have housing assistance for those who qualify. There is also a lot more that they do, this place helped me so much when I had nowhere to go.

    Went to the One Stop Center and Turning Points today for a tour of the facility - was excellent and informative - if interested, make an appointment - takes about an hour and well worth the time to see all that is going on there - there were clients in all areas - the place was a beehive of activity - a wonderful facility for our community and one of the top in the country - highly recommend checking it out.

    Turning points is so awesome. Without them I would not have a wonderful home for my family and I.

    I volunteered at the Stand Down held in Palmetto on Nov. 1st. I was so impressed with the services available for the all those in need. There was a separate building just for veterans. I was in that building and saw how they helped the men and women with any paperwork. They serviced breakfast to all and had a bounce house for children. I give this organization an A+.
