In the short time I've been here, Time for Change Foundation has changed my life. I am a recovering drug addict and a little over a year ago I gave my children up to CFS. Since coming here I have started getting unsupervised visits, and I should have my children back by the end of October. This program has given me faith that I can succeed in life and be a productive member of society, and that I WILL be the sober mom that my children deserve.
A blessing that I found time for change foundation and was excepted into the program. Coming into the program completely broken young women from the inside and out. I was homeless, no confidence, no self sufficiency, faith was broken, no hope, no motivation, and no direction for my own life. Since being here I have had many blessings. I have had a roof over my head in one of the few beautiful shelter homes they have within the foundation. I was under weight arriving here, and only had two pairs of clothing entering into the program. Now I am the proper weight and have a nice size wardrobe. Surrounded with caring, loving, fun, humorous clients and staff is amazing. I have been able to build relationship, and memories. That will last me forever. I have been rebuilding myself in all aspects. With the way I feel, look, and carry myself. I attend group Monday - Friday in the evening and job search Monday - Friday during the day. Which It has have helped connect with the other girls, as well as get out emotions and situations things that I am not the only one. They have helped get into individual therapy which I attended weekly. To help me get through old and current issues. I have gone several interview while being here. I had been able to landed a temp job that was my highest pay ever. I have been able to establish a saving account for the first time in my entire whole life. I am almost 25 years old and never been able to save a penny until coming here. I have see the growth within myself and many other clients. I have seen clients get clean and stay clean through the help of the program. I have seen clients get the there children back and establish quality relationships. This a wonderful foundation and do many great things.

Before coming to time for change foundation i suffered with drugs for sixteen years. i lost my kids to my aunt due to my drug addiction. Right after that i went to prison after getting out i had my daughter Londyn. When she was born she passed away two and a half months later then i relapsed. At that moment i realized i needed help i went to program which i completed. I didn't have anywhere else to go, that's when i heard about time for change. Since being here i have been able to overcome some challenges that held me back in my past and i have been able to move forward in a healthy way. Time for change is a blessing and i thank god everyday for giving me the opportunity to be here.
I interned with Time for Change Foundation while I was getting my Undergraduate degree at the University of Redlands. The level of dedication and commitment to changing the lives of individuals and communities for the better, was inspiring to say the least. I am now recently graduated and have been hired as a full time member of the Time for Change Foundation team. I am even more impressed by the level of support that this group of individuals is capable of providing to the communities they serve, as well as one another. It really is like one big, incredibly hardworking, family.

Since I walked in these doors for time for change in Feb ,3, 2016 my life has changed dramatically. Time for change has taught me how to be a better mom, friend, sister and a productive member of society.I will be forever grateful for time for change who never gave up on me and showed me the true meaning of family.
Hello, my name is Shanda...I have struggled with addiction for 14 years and came to this program 9 months ago...I was homeless and had no where to go and no hope left...This program welcomed me in with open arms and showed me love that no one else did. Four months after being in the program, I regained custody of my children and started building a life we should've had all along. I have started a savings which I have never had before, my kids are stable and going to school everyday. I am building structure with them, which we have never really had until now. I wake up in the morning wanting to live instead of wanting to die...I am forever grateful for the staff here at Time For Change and everything they have done and continue to do for my kids and I...I could never thank them enough
i have used drugs since i was 18. im now 25 ive been through rehab about 10 times. and incarcerated for three months. as many times as i have done programs i have never been in a program where i was able to get them help i need and move foward in my life. ive been here for 3 months and ive already built a savings account and had a job. i have a place to call home. i get to see my son more than i was before. ive grown so much and im able to deal with the things life throws at me instead of running back to drugs or the streets or men. this place has truley shown me i dont need anyone to define me. i no longer run from my fears but i face them.
