Reviews for Time for Change Foundation

Rating: 5 stars  

After I graduated from college two years ago, it was very difficult for me to find a job in my field of Women's Studies. Therefore, I started working at a call center where I met a co-worker who seemed different from most. He was hard working, unselfish, and very motivating. One day he was searching for emergency resources to help him as a single father of four young children. He then came across Time For Change Foundation Organization, where he received support so him and his family can move into their own apartment. He always talked about how other programs turned him away because he was a man. I felt inspired about the impact TFCF had left on my co-worker. He suggested I volunteer. Working full time, I started volunteering for TFCF on my off days. It was one of the best decisions I made in my life. I have never worked in such a positive and accepting environment. As clients come in and out of the door, Mrs.Carter and the staff always made sure everyone was assisted with some kind of resource. TFCF does not discriminate against anyone because they see individuals for who they are and not how society have stigmatized them. I have seen them work countless hours to make sure someone did not leave our building in their same unfortunate circumstances. TFCF not only sees the potential in clients, but they also seen something special within me. When I did not think other employers can give a post graduate like myself a chance at employment; Mrs. Carter did. I am truly grateful and blessed to be working for one of the best organizations where they truly care about helping the community and building hope in every persons life they come across.

I entered Time For Change a very broken, abused and doubtful person. I trusted no one. How was I supposed too, when the one I loved and was married to was the one breaking me down. The staff at Time For Change understood my situation and my hidden feelings. They helped me open up and face what I had been through. Here I was encouraged to reconnect with God and grow deeper in my personal relationship with Him. Today, I have rediscovered that I am a very worthwhile lady with many attributes to offer to society and my family and to God. Thank you Time For Change for helping me change my life. I any ladies are serious about changing their lives then I encourage them to step forward, take the challenge and contact Time For Change. You will not regret calling.

Before I came to a decision that I did not want to live my life in darkness. I was stuck into using drugs while trying to be a mom. I was not managing life well. so i decide to get help and went to gibson house for women i got clean went threw process groups to heal some internal issues and graduated. after, i came to Time for change cause i needed more structure and guidance I needed to make a change. my experience here has been a huge blessing for me im getting my life back . Im back to being self sufficient. Me and my sons have a place to call our own. me and my sons bond is growing stronger . Im dealing with life and handling life on life terms very well. im working on internal issues thanks to our groups we attend during the week and the metting's i attend also. They keep me real busy in a positive way. Me and my sons are really blessed

Hi my name is Melissa first and for most i'd like to start with how it was before coming to time for change my experience here at time for change and where i'am at now. When entering tfcf I was lost broken homeless and addicted to prescription pill's . I was scared and did not know what to expect from tfcf . little did i know that my life was about to change in so many ways. This program has helped me become a woman again giving me the ability to be a mother again. They have welcomed me like family they have giving me the tool's to becoming sufficient again I have now been in this program for 1 year . And I hold a manager position at work I can pay my bills and save money something that was never in my plans in life I can honestly say that everything iv'e become in the last year has everything to do with time for change foundation and for that i'm vary grateful for all of them.

I got accepted into this program straight from prison. I was given the chance to be successfully reunited with my family. I have been able to see what living a life free from alcohol and drugs are like make honest decisions about my life and to also how to take responsibility for my actions. I was still lost even though I had taken various self-help groups and therapy throughout the years. Time for Change helped me set a positive foundation for my life, and to cherish what true freedom is about. Through all of the many things I have learned the one most important thing is that someone has finally believed in Elizabeth and helped me to be free from all bondage. When you come from where I have come from then you know I am changed because of Time for Change. My name is Elizabeth Ward and I am changed.

My name is Valerie Rodriguez. My experience with Time For Change Foundation has been such a blessing. At first this was new to me to go to anyone for help besides my family. I prayed about three weeks prior to coming March 10, 2015. So this is where my great father Jesus Christ led me. I am leaving the program October 1, 2015 and am really nervous about stepping out in Faith on my own. Time For Change has been a stepping stone, great stepping stone to regaining my children and a preparing a way to succeed and get back on my feet from having came straight out of rehab. I am blessed to be here and met the TFCF staff and other sisters here in the program. I have made friends I will keep forever and learned skills I plan always to keep as well. Words cannot express my gratitude towards TFCF. I would hope as many women possible cross this path as I did here at Time For Change Foundation. Thank You Ms Carter and your staff for this rope out of a whole that i was in in. Most of all Thank You Jesus for instilling such programs into the hearts of your people.

With the assistance of TIME FOR CHANGE and the generosity of Miss.Kim Carter I have been given the blessing of a safe and stable environment to start my healthy foundation to become the mother I was intended to be. Although it takes a lot of work, dedication and commitment to work, go to groups, attend meetings and be a sober healthy mom it is well worth it. I now have a year sober and I have both my children in my life, my family respects me and most of all my actions show I truly respect myself. I have nothing but good to say when someone asks me about this program. Nothing changes until something changes and this program most definitely allows you to do so.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

it has been a well rounded well organized organization. i would not change anything...maybe try to help men in our community struggling to be single fathers to kids.

I came into a time for change in desperate need. They accepted me right away, since I have been here I have gotten all of my children back. They gave me my own apartment and have guided me through to help me better myself as a mother and a person. I am so thankful for this program and Miss. Carter as well as all her staff for changing my life!

My name is Desiree Portillo and I'm currently a client in Time
For Change Foundation. I am writing this to encourage others out there who have no hope, no direction, and who have hit rock bottom. This foundation is a realistic success, a rock solid ground in which is helping myself learn how to live in society, it is teaching me independence and reintegrating me in society. In the past i was not able to function in society, i was institutionalized, broken and lost...i really felt there was no hope. But today i can say that i am no longer who i was thanks to time for change foundation, i am learning and growing, i am sober and also my family is being restored due to my progress in time for change. this program really works...thank you Kim Carter, and thank you lord for opening the doors to Time for Change....I've finally been freed from the bondage ....Thank you Time for Change.
