Three Pillars Capital Group created it’s non-profit arm World Will Be Better, a non-profit organization, with a main goal and focus to raise funds for the management and construction of a women and children’s shelter in Houston. The shelter will be operated and managed by Turning Point Center.
Turning Point Center’s goal is to to rehab the elderly homeless of Houston into productive members of society by equipping them with food, housing, and education. The elderly homeless is the most neglected group. Turning Point steps in to take care of them and give them an opportunity to get back into society.
Turning Point Center receives over a dozen calls and walk ins from women with children who are displaced and need a shelter. However Turning Point does not have the infrastructure to accommodate all these women and children and has to unfortunately turn them away. This is where World Will Be Better (Three Pillars’ non-profit arm) steps in to help expand the facilities of Turning Point Center. Currently, the architect firm has been chosen and initial plans have been drawn for these new shelters. Three Pillars has pledged portions of the proceeds to help fund the initial efforts and help raise the remaining capital of the total $3m needed to construct the facility to house the women and children currently being turned away.
Isha founded Turning Point Center in 1988 when she sold her home and used her life savings to acquire a dilapidated 34-unit apartment complex and refurbished it into a safe haven for up to about 90 residents at any given time. Fast forward to today and Turning Point Center is a thriving community with a plethora of support services including hand-on job training, transportation services, continuing education, counseling and substance abuse education, and much more. With the new women and children’s shelter, Isha and the movement she started 30 years ago can extend its impact in the community even more.
