Mission: The Time Is Now exists solely for the purpose of alleviating the suffering of those who find themselves facing economic hardship.
Results: Due to the CNN Heroes event in December 2011 and the CBS News feature we have been very busy with requests from all over the United States. We have successfully offered assistance to families, seniors, and the disabled in 14 states. Shelter assistance alone has been provided for over 600 fellow Americans. We have assisted many struggling with high gas costs, car repairs and also have provided many reliable vehicles for the working poor. Over $80,000 in utility assistance has been provided to restore electric, gas, water and sewer service. Over $45,000 in emergency food supplies and support to our W.C. Food Pantry. We provided toiletries, household necessities, clothing and furniture for many. Wheel chairs, ramps, and other specialized services for the handicapped were given. This has been a very busy year of helping the poverty stricken in America.
Target demographics: Poverty stricken children, senior citizens, working poor families, the handicapped, disabled veterans.
Direct beneficiaries per year: Over 500
Geographic areas served: Southeast Wisconsin, Illinois
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!!!

I have been on the board of The Time Is Now to Help for many years. The organization is working hard to bring awareness to, and assistance to, the many poverty stricken living in the United States. I have seen first hand how life-changing The Time Is Now to Helps assistance can be. Removing the pains of poverty, witnessing the sometimes hidden struggle for our seniors and disabled, preventing homelessness for single mothers and families, and feeding hungry children is what moves me to volunteer and give.
