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 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!!!!!!
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.
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.
The best non profit organizations not only serve their clients, but inspire those who see their work to make a difference as well. The Time is Now to Help provides tangible services to hundreds, perhaps thousands of people who find themselves in a place where they can no longer 'go it alone.' This organization gives the hand up when it is needed most, and often when all else has failed. They are seen as 'angels,' and indeed they show God's love through their compassionate and unselfish acts. It is not just about providing funds, but about providing friendship. Reading about the positive changes they bring about in others' lives inspires all of us who know this organization to try to do more when we encounter someone in need of help. Even the gift of a smile can make a difference to someone in the dark. Thank you the Time is Now to Help for making our world a kinder place.
There is a saying--none of us can help everyone, but all of us can help someone. The Time is Now has never lost sight of the individual, even while the ability of the organization grows to help more and more people struggling with poverty, homelessness and despair. The founders continue to be as involved today as they likely were with the very first person whose need captured their hearts. To be able to sustain the kind of compassion, grueling schedule and personal attention that is required to perform their loving work is a miracle in itself. On top of that, the founders and their organization work miracles in countless lives every year, and inspire the rest of us to help where we can.
Thank you Yvonne for being the last review needed in 2013 to achieve our Top Nonprofit status. You are always an inspiration to us with your hard work and good heart. We know you know first hand the compassion, grueling schedule and personal attention required to fulfill the missions we have chosen. God Bless, Corinne
I don't even know Sal but am in constant awe of what he and The Time Is Now is able to accomplish for those in need. The stories about those that are helped are just amazing, tear-jerking, and inspiring. The Time Is Now has changed the lives of so many people in need. Seeing Sal on CNN a couple years ago gave a view of the huge impact this charity has had on the community. This is one charity to support!
I'm an assistant property manager for an apartment complex in the area. I've seen some pretty down on their luck people in my line of work. People who are losing everything due to unforeseen circumstances. When things get too far out of control for some I know I can contact The Time Is Now To Help and they are always willing to hear the person out and do whatever they can to help. I had a resident facing eviction and The Time Is Now To Help stepped in and found this poor woman a place to stay and helped her get back on her feet when she had NO ONE to turn to for help. I can't express what it means to me to have them to turn to when no one else cares, and to know they will be there time and time again. I take donations for them and I try to pay them back but I could never give back what they offer day after day to those in need. Thank you The Time Is Now To Help for being there.
The definition of the word charity is generosity and helpfulness especially toward the needy or suffering; also : aid given to those in need. The Time is Now to Help is that and so much more. Not only does Sal and his team provide THINGS that people need they also provide something that many other charities don't provide, they help give people their dignity back. Poverty strips people of so much more than material possessions and The Time is Now recognizes this and addresses it. Yes, people need food and shelter but they need to be treated as and made to feel like they matter, that they're important and that they aren't worthless. I think it's amazing that they're able to provide them with their material needs as well as emotional needs as well.
This organization reminds us of the positive change we can make in this world. Reaching out and helping those who are less fortunate, whether it be by donating a toy to a local shelter or buying someone a much needed cup of coffee, is something The Time is Now takes to a whole new level... helping families get back on their feet, making sure they can celebrate the holidays sheltered in warmth with good food in their bellies. The work of Sal and Corrine (and their team of volunteers) is wonderful and I am sure can be equated to a miracle in the lives of those they help.
I read this newspaper column for years (sharing how clients were helped) and have been so moved at the compassion and individual support that was offered to each person or family in need. Families that had lost hope--and this man enters their life and gives them necessities along with replenished hope for their future and in other people. I love the fact that he visits these families personally and figures out what is the best way to get them back on their feet. When you give to the Time is Now to Help, you know that you will be making a real difference in people's lives who truly need it.
