I was in need of an accessible vehicle to transport myself in my power wheelchair... THE TIME IS NOW came through- far above and beyond my dreams!! The men stuck with me until issues were resolved, they never gave up on me, and all is great now. I am able to transport myself to and from medical appointments and social outings!!! Thanks and much appreciation Sal and Shawn!!!

My name was given to Sal. My van was repossessed because I was out of work due to illness. Sal called me on a Sunday and I picked up a vehicle on Tuesday. THIS ORGANIZATION IS REAL! Thank you Sal and everyone else involved! God bless you all!

While my family and I had an extremely trying year and were facing eviction I searched and searched for some where to turn for help. It seemed we reached continuous dead ends when someone told me about The Time Is Now. I wrote a letter and continued to pray for some guidance, all the while telling myself if I didnt hear back, it just meant there was someone in a worse spot than we were. 4 days after mailing my letter, Sal came to my home and I knew at that moment our prayers were heard. I was in a state of shock and quite honestly still am. This is a group of people doing Gods work every day with nothing asked in return. They are amazing people and I feel blessed just to have met a man sent from God!!

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

Just hope the donations continue to grow so their ability to help those struggling can grow also.

Several months ago I came on hard times when I had
To take temporary custody of my two nephews, I nearly lost my home, my car needed serious repair, we had little food to go around. With the time is now to help and it's group of caring and sharing people sal was able to provide my family major assistance that I can't even explain without it bringing tears to my eyes. He put us in a safe car, brought my utilities up to date, fed us,
Clothed us, and put our life back on track.
I sent a letter and three days went by and sal like an angel showed up at my home and saved us. He took away our hunger and our fears and helped us. I didn't even know people or
Charities like this really did anything. You hear stories about
Charities taking donations but never providing a helping hand to those in need. To my suprise, they really came to our aid!
I recommended this charity to one friend of mine and a stranger
Who unloaded some their struggles on me, and sal and the time is now
Came to their aid as well!
The time is now to help is a safe place and the answer to my prayers.

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