When Heroes Home Gate expanded into a larger space, the former location was left vacant. Quickly it became apparent that the anser to the question of what to do with the house was "house people". Thanks to the hard work of Heroes Home Gate staff, Turning Point was established in 2021 to provide a long term solution for men exiting in-patient drug treatment without a housing plan. Since then, Turning Point has expanded to having its own staff and serving men exiting substance use treatment, incarceration, and homlessness.
Turning Point works very closely with Heroes Home Gate and encourages all service eligible Veterans to persue that program.
