I came to time for Change out of Gibson house still very much lost and broken. Time for changed open their doors to me with the opportunity to find myself again, to regain custody of my daughter and to help me be independent once again. I am very grateful for this blessing god and Ms. Carter has given me. I have only been in this program one month but in that one month I am becoming more confident in myself. Thank You time for Change for helping me get my life back.

I volunteered to serve my community, this nonprofit organization has helped me to achieve these goals. While others seem to about the community, this organization provided us with the opportunity to actually go out and literally knock on doors and meet with the community members.

In the short time I've been here, Time for Change Foundation has changed my life. I am a recovering drug addict and a little over a year ago I gave my children up to CFS. Since coming here I have started getting unsupervised visits, and I should have my children back by the end of October. This program has given me faith that I can succeed in life and be a productive member of society, and that I WILL be the sober mom that my children deserve.
