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.

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.

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

Turn your life around is a non profit group here in my community.I first saw the story in the newspaper on how a recovered addict was helping people who are where she once was. She was stepping beyond herself and leaving her comfort zone for something to important. That tyoe of dedication pulled at my heart and I went in to see if i could volunteer. She was just getting off the ground, we had clothes everywhere, people everywhere, questions everywhere and even no air conditioning there for a minute! Everyone pulled through and worked so hard together. Cheryl and her team made things come together and in so many ways. They are a support groups, out patient rehab services, clothing programs and so much more for people who really need it. Everything donated is put in the store and sold in order to fund all the services they provide. With drugs being such a problem in our community as well as the rest of the nation, it's more than just positive to have such programs for people, it's essential. Even saving one person and showing them a better way would be worth everything they sacrificed and have done for others. Each day that passes another person walks through the doors for a friendly smile, a helping hand,hope and love. You have that at TYLA. This is a program worth supporting in anyway you can. I know it's hard to give when your thinking the money will be spent on something other than your donating for. It 100 % all to TYLA and the people it serves. This place has an address not PO Box, they are there when you walk through the door. Real people, real hearts and real hope.

My name is Dyan Norleet and I have been a volunteer off & on since they started..I have had the privilege of seeing them go from a small agency to one of the best in Tucson AZ, I have brought friends, family there for help, in donations, attending classes and counseling..I have always found them to be kind, supportive, helpful and always very caring..if they don't have the answer, they either find it or create it!! There was a time when I was very sick due to a treatment, and need help...they were there the next day, with what I needed and installed it..I always see "friends of TYLA" stopping by to bring donations, sharing how great their lives are going, and staff always has time to listen & support(no appt needed to show caring, & support) The staff there are well-trained and offer excellent services...I recommend to everyone to go there!! I am a professional therapist who is unable to work with over 20 yrs of experience, it is without hesitation that I say, they are the best in the community, and have brought so much to Tucson!! TYLA always helps!!!

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

like I said previously, when I was in need, Karl were there the next day with need installments, and never asked for money, and came with a positive, caring attitude that left me feeling empowered and not ashamed that I needed help! That says a lot about what they do, and how they do it, that's so important for clients!!

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

love to see them in a bigger building, so they could continue to expand services,,,,especially because services have been cut so much in AZ.
