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!!!
Absolutely the best organization! The Time Is Now values every single penny donated. They make sure funds are properly distributed to help desperate people get through tough times. Kind and compassionate in every way. Thank you Time Is Now!
My son is a paraplegic and The Time Is Now To Help has helped him immensely. They got him a new wheelchair that was much need and helped get repairs done on his accessible van.
This organization has been a blessing to so many people in need.
This is one of the best organizations I have ever had dealt with. I reached out to them for help with my son obtaining a wheelchair and received a call back within a couple days. Sal not only took much time to talk with me and my son, he bought my son Michael a brand new wheelchair and had much needed repairs on his van taken care of so my son would have a safe van to travel with his daughters and back and forth from doctors appointments. I had the opportunity to meet Sal and his family and the love they have for people I can't even express. So loving, giving, caring, devotion, selfless and God fearing people. God Bless them and the works that they are doing!!!!!!
I have never before met a more sincere and caring individual than WC, the man that heads up "The Time Is Now To Help: I applaud his hard work and dedication in helping the senior citizens, the handicapped, poor families, veterans, and single mothers and children in need. It is my opinion that his organization is the best in helping people in need and making sure your donations to The Time is Now to Help is well spent.
I would be homeless if it was not for the time is now they are generous beyond anything you could imagine they are truly the hands and feet of Jesus
This is quite simply the best nonprofit I have ever dealt with. I don't often find myself having extra money, but when I do, I try and send it here. I know, without question, that every single cent will be used to help someone in need. I imagine real items, like a bed, a wheel chair or a repaired car being given to a family that needs it. It means a lot to be that my donation is not lost in administrative fees, but becomes something tangible.
I wish I could give six stars.......
This is by far my favorite nonprofit. In my humble opinion, Sal, his family and all the other volunteers are candidates for saint hood. Each time I donated I always knew every cent went to help a real person. You can't really say that about too many places these days. I wish I could rate them 10 stars.......
My Wife and I have been supporters for years. We have been honored to work with Sal in helping find homes and jobs for people in need in the past and will continue to help this fine organization however we can. We support the food pantry too.
Just being in contact with Sal is uplifting enough. I know when Sal meets people in need, their hearts are lifted with hope for the future. Sal know that shelter and food is not enough and sometimes people need love too.
I am so proud of Sal and his crew for doing all the extremely good work they've done over the years.
God bless Sal and those who help The Time Is Now To Help.
I am a contributor to The Time is Now to Help. I am so happy and appreciative that I have a place that I can contribute to that I know uses 100% of the donations to help people. They help people in our surrounding communities and that is a comfort. Not only is it a totally charitable group, but I get my tax document every month for my donations. I am not a large contributor, but it is important for me to do what I can. To know that I am able to make a big difference in my community because my donations are added to many others is extremely satisfying!!! They are supported and recognized by many other larger charitable groups because of the tireless work of Sal Dimiceli and his family. Sal has devoted his life to helping others. Read his inspiring story on their charity web page thetimeisnowtohelp.org.
As a member of the community where Time is Now provides care and services, I think people take for granted the time, energy and compassion given by the founders and staff of this unique and important organization, Sal and all deserve our gratitude and support as they work to alleviate immediate suffering of the poor and disadvantaged in a loving responsible way.
The Time is Now is an exceptional organization run by compassionate, intelligent professionals who volunteer ALL of their time for the sake of the less-fortunate among us. Thanks to this organization, there are thousands of stories to be told that start with homelessness, poverty and despair that end with hope and promise for a better life. Everything good you have read about the Time is Now is true. Every penny you give goes directly to those who need it. Like everyone else who knows the founders personally, I am in awe of the depth of their giving of themselves, as well as of funds and services. My favorite story about Sal is how--after a very long day working to help people, he went out after dark to find and rescue an injured Canada goose, and then brought it to a local wildlife hospital for care. True compassion understands that All Life is precious and a miracle. The people touched by the Time is Now are better--not just financially, but spiritually. If you are looking for a very special cause, this is it.
I don't usually write reviews for organizations, companies or products ... however I can't say it enough... Sal Dimiceli is by true definition a HERO. I had the honor of personally meeting him in 2008 when I volunteered at a local Lions Club. He was a guest speaker, sharing his personal story of growing up in poverty, his devotion to himself and Our Lord, giving insight on the Charity he began more than 20yrs ago, The Time Is Now to Help. Last year, I reached out to him, this time because I had nowhere else to turn. I was desperate, unable to care for my granddaughter's, needs like medical care and clothing/ food. She was 3yr old, diagnosed with Autism, ADHD, Sensory Sensitivities and constant panic attacks. I have legal custody of her and being a single grandmother, I am her ONLY care-giver. Her father had died shortly after her 1st birthday and her mother was struggling with her own issues. I was unable to hold steady employment because I couldn't find childcare. She was in 2 different centers, however BOTH Director's ask that I find more 'suitable' providers that are better trained to care for disabled children. Unfortunately, there are none in the area where we live. I worked closely with the local school district for 8 wks and eventually she qualified for the Early Child Program (Special Education). She was given a great opportunity that would help in so many ways However, financial problems were making it difficult for me to give her the help she needed...I WAS WITHOUT A VEHICLE FOR 12 MONTHS. There is NO public transportation in the rural area we lived in. Moving wasn't an option since the School District had the best program for her needs. Also financially strapped, coming up with the costs of moving wasn't an option either. After writing a letter to Sal, it was atleast 3 wks before I heard from him. Meanwhile, I had given up hope, thought I was facing another rejection. A few days before Christmas, I get the call that has forever changed our lives. Understanding now, why it took as long as it did, I am grateful to the businesses & individuals who contribute to this fantastic Charity. Donations are used in the SAME area where there is a NEED. When I wrote a letter to Time Is Now to Help, funds were low where I live, the reason it took awhile for a return call. Sal does ask ALOT of questions, he digs deep into personal and financial matters. He is cautious with every phone call and letter he gets. There are so many who write to him, the need is often times greater than the help that can be given. As much as Sal would love to help every person he meets or talks to, its impossible. If he weren't cautious, if he didn't dig deep... this Charity would't have the success it does. Donors would be hesitant, communities wouldn't be as confident, everybody would wonder what the funds are being used for, who is being helped, did money go to those truly in need or was fraud involved? Nobody needs to question this Charity, without a doubt every $$$ goes towards giving families/individuals HOPE when once there was none. Christmas Eve, I picked up my new vehicle, with the help of so many. My granddaughter has received the medical care she needs from neuropsychologists, therapists, pediatric dentists (oral surgeons) . She will be entering 4K in September. Another example of how Sal Dimiceli impacts the lives of so many.
There is no better charity in the area than The Time To Help Is Now or a more selfless man than Sal Dimiceli. This man nor only those that can't help themselves but donates 20% of the profits from his real estate business to the cause as well as having put several millions of his own money. Not only did he help my wife and I when we couldn't afford to fix our car but also runs a homeless shelter, pays utility bills and puts food in empty pantries. On top of that he does not expect others to do all the work. He personally visits the unfortunate people who need his help and drives them to the store, utility, or wherever necessary to provide assistance. He has also instilled the gift of charity to his children who are following in his footsteps to serve this poorly under served community. Besides my wife and I he has helped no less that at least 5 other members in our community we know personally. Some men just talk the talk but Sal and his charity walk the walk and truly give of themselves 7 days a week. He deserved the CNN nomination for person of the year several years ago and deserves the recognition.
The Time is Now to Help is a well respected non profit organization in the Lake Geneva, Wisconsin area, with a proven track record of providing genuine, thoughtful help to those in need. The organization is run by a leader who has integrity and is accountable in a responsible way to make sure the donor dollars and volunteer resources are streamlined to offer substantial, life changing help.
They provided invaluable assistance to me...as a working single mother, any unforseen expense can be detrimental to our living situation.....I would be homeless if it were not for Sal...they also helped with back to school clothes, supplies, etc. for my kids.
They were able to get my car back on the road and catch me up on my rent. I never expected that kind of help that also kept my dignity in tact. Thank you.
I love Sals story and I feel inspired by the work that he does. I also appreciate his method, an how hands on he is in helping all of the wonderful people who require assistance.
Treeoflifeministry2014 is the church part of this non-profit by the name of C Label Group which is a organization that not only help homeless men and women get jobs but they feed, clothes, and give them valuable job skills that is needed. They help the unemployable get jobs!!!!! I'm now the assistant manager at clays country kitchen. I go once a week to volunteer to help feed and give my testimony to help letting the men and women know that they are in the right place. Even the staff shows that everything is going to be alright I thank God for this place It not only saved my life but my entire graduated class minus 3 of us are doing exceptionally well.

The Time is Now helped me when I was struggling as a single mom. I was not receiving the child support that was court ordered. My children had silver tape on their shoes to hold them together, and had no money for new school clothing. I was behind on rent and was going to the food pantry to feed my children. While the county I was in, did not do there job in the matter of child support, TTIN stepped in and helped me. There are no words and thanks good enough for this help. Some day when I can, I will repay the kindness in donations to this organization that was started by a man with the biggest heart in the world!! God bless and thank you Sal
The time is now was very rude to me, i was questioned with rudeness in the voice of the person who makes the decision to help. If i didnt need the help i never would of took the little bit they offered. I was talked down on for being a young single mom with a dui on my record from a mistake i made at 21 yr old. Never been in trouble other then the dui. And sal was so rude to me and judged me over a phone call. No one came to my house like u read in the paper. I got a single phone call. Was told he wouldnt help with gas or anything to do with transportation because of a dui i had that was 9years ago. I dont even drink and i havent sence i got that dui at 21 yrs old. I have 4 sons living in walworth co without transport or fuel money is impossable' its not like therez public transportation out here. I payed and went to all classes an was a valid driver it didnt matter to him tho.Then when i started crying the man on the phone asked if i took depressants in a very harsh voice. He then told me all he can do is send a gift card for food in the mail. Ive never asked for help after that. I never had felt so degraded for asking for help in my life. I wounder how many others were treated like this but not speaking up because he is well known in the area. Money is power n the root of all evil. Im not afaid no more. I will no longer allow anyone to degrade me and my family because were poor..
Providing help to those who need it most. The Time is Now is a much needed organisation in our community.
A wonderful charity, who I first read about in the local paper where Sal writes a column about people in our community who have fallen on hard times and need help. The Time is Now not only helps them in the short term by paying a bill or buying food, but also helps them find more long term solutions to the situation they are in. I have been fortunate to meet Sal and his family and can attest to their compassion for all living things and their passion to help those in need.
We donate regularly to Time is Now because we know every penny goes to help those in legitimate need. I love that Sal personally visits the needy and checks them out for himself. He accounts for every dollar, and follows up on those he helps. A weekly newspaper article keeps us up to date on the ministry so we know what's currently happening. Love this ministry!
