Ilka’s Story

After being incarcerated for so long I did not realize that I was institutionalized. TFCF supported me with no attachments and helped me learn how to be free. They understand what it feels like being incarcerated and know exactly what I needed. Throughout my discomforts, outbursts, trials and tribulations, and character defects TFCF continued to lovingly support and guide me. I have been able to receive one-on-one therapy, get 24-hour care when it comes to my needs or questions, and best of all they have provided me with a safe, stable, healthy place to live. I’m also grateful for the Positive Futures program. Without it, I would have never gotten the opportunity to come to Time for Change.

For the first time I am doing things that I never thought of doing. Things such as getting my daughter’s birth certificate for the first time, cooking meals, also going to events and having fun with my daughter. My little one is happy and stable, going to school and spending quality time with a mother that loves her. I now believe in second chances and this would not be possible without Time for Change!
