Letter received from Peer-Support Client on 12/23/14:

"I would like to thank you for having my back today in court. Nobody has ever had my best interest like you did. I really appreciate you taking time out of your busy schedule, that means a lot to me. I'm really looking forward to
working with you and helping me put my fatal mistakes behind me. I won't let us down, I can honestly say you have given me the tools to becoming something other than an addict running the streets and it is also a wonderful feeling knowing that when I step out of prison I will have my life heading in the right direction. I can truly say you're the angel I have been praying for. Thank you Mr. Steele for caring enough to help a struggling addict as myself to recovery. I will write to you when I get to Alhambra, letting you know what yard I'm on if my calculations are right I will have six to seven months, so lets not waste no more time, lets capture the mind so I can do what is right.

Sincerely, Mr. Eric T"

I have seen nothing but love exuding from the employees, volunteers and clients at this organization. Even through the hardships that most of these clients are experiencing, their attitudes are positive as a result of the help and support that Turn You Life Around provides. The employees express true compassion for each client and treat each one according to their individual needs. They are flexible and understanding when approached with new challenges and always appear to find a solution. I definitely recommend Turn Your Life Around as a resource to retrieving help, guidance and support.

Turn your Life Around is an amazing program! It helps a wide range of people with a number of issues. They take each case one by one, and treats each person like an individual. If a client has a problem, TYLA is the first to explain what actions need to be taken. They are very helpful, and a great resource.

Don't be fooled by the previous reviews. TYLA is lock step with the courts and will throw you under the bus first chance they get, at least in my expirence. They talk down to clients mainly because they understand that everything is court ordered and they got you in a rock in a hard place. People where nodding off in groups and the whole deal seemed like a racket to get your money. TYLA is working hand in hand with using the court system to reap profits and not about truly helping people stay sober. As long as that money is paid every session then the machine keeps a rollin. I pray things improve but I won't be referring anyone here.

Ways to make it better...

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

Show a lot more respect to the clients who fork out their hard earned money to keep that operation afloat. Don't get me wrong, there was some nice and caring people there but also some power tripping people who seemed like they enjoyed having some power over court ordered people who had to bite there lip. Just. Of conducive to a stress free environment. If you can afford it, it might b better to spend a little more money and find a treatment option that has more positive energy. Iwish the best

Turn Your Life Around is amazing. It's passion for helping the homeless population with substance abuse and mental health issues is fresh and caring. They help iin so many ways, clothing, employment service assistance, peer mentoring, support group meetings and just as a resource center to help people get off the streets and into shelter and back on the right track.

I have voluenteered services at TYLA for two years.
I have helped with grant research and fundraising evernt.

I have watched this organization grow in number of clients and services offered.

They give clients a place to go when there seems no place. They care about each client
and go out of their way to help with mentoring, support groups and resources.

The Great!

I have seen people obtain sobriety that had never been sober in their life time. They have been reunited with lost family relations and gained employment. I have witnessed people truly turning their life around.

More people with recovery support experience would volunteer their time for mentoring clients.

TYLA is an amazing organization. I work here as an intern, and I can honestly say that I have seen the people here make significant differences in their clients' lives. The employees and counselors make honest connections and really do want to help people in need get back up and make improvements to their lives. TYLA offers many services that help people find new outlooks on life and make changes for the better. I believe TYLA has had a huge impact on the community of Tucson and will continue doing so in the future. TYLA gives hope to people who thought they had none. The organization is really living up to its name, helping people to "turn their lives around."

This agency has the highest of integrity that I have ever known, they empower our clients to believe in themselves, they set an example of what is like to succeed if you have the right attitude and have resources, I call them our Guardian Angels , they help you with everything they got starting with a kind and warm welcome when you walk in their office, if you need something and they don't have it they find a way to get it. Tucson should be very proud to have TYLA as a non Profit agency to help out our community. thank you Martha Hunnicutt
