I volunteered to serve my community, this nonprofit organization has helped me to achieve these goals. While others seem to about the community, this organization provided us with the opportunity to actually go out and literally knock on doors and meet with the community members.

My name is Arianna i'm 23 and a single mother. I come from a broken home and a family who is still suffering from this disease of addiction. i have 2 kids who are in cps care and I've been fighting to get them back. I've been homeless, incarcerated and addicted to drugs. By the grace of God I found Time For Change. Since I've been here I feel Safe and at home, not having to look for my next place to stay for the night. I attend meeting and 12 step classes and am actively job searching. On Oct. 16 I will be getting my kids back, thanks to the staff and my sisters who kept me going at a Time For change. Today i can say I have my life back.

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.
