Review for Turn Your Life Around (TYLA) Inc, Tucson, AZ, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

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.

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

the faces of those who walk out the door taking with them what they have learned , who they have met and who they are now.

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

Can't think of anything. I think everyone is doing a great job in all areas.

Role:  Volunteer & I helped in begining stages of the thrift store and brainstormed on other ideas. Currently I am assisting with awareness and any area I am needed in.
