Servant's House


Since its establishment, TPCS has been committed to providing secure housing and supportive services to women and their children. Serving as the only family shelter in the Township of Irvington, our Servant’s House Emergency Housing Program has provided safe, temporary housing to over 3,500 individuals.

Providing enhanced emergency housing through an apartment like setting, Servant’s House houses up to 24 families at any given time. The structure of our facility ensures a family’s ability to have an independent and private living space, which reduces the personal stigma and trauma of being in an open or congregate shelter environment.

Our enhanced emergency housing model offers on-site assistance to clients in need of ancillary services.

Services are based upon an intensive family-centered case management model that ensures coordinated and expeditious access to a range of appropriate social, health, and medical services for the resident and their children. All services are structured to facilitate a client’s level of independent functioning and overall quality of life.

We hope that when residents leave our facility, they leave with a new sense of hope, ambitions, and purpose. Servant’s House is much more than a shelter, it’s a safe stop on the way home.

“Unfortunate circumstances with your family can blindside you. That’s what happened to me; but Turning Point Community Services was my light in the dark. I started as a resident in TPCS’s Servant’s House, and now 16 years later this is my family.”
