Amber’s Story

Released from incarceration in June of 2020, Amber was driven to find a better way of life, but was unsure of where to start. On her acceptance into Time For Change Foundation, she eagerly completed program classes such as Financial Literacy, Entrepreneur Mindset, and Employment Development. With her newfound knowledge on budgeting and saving, she was able to improve her credit score, and buy herself a car. Amber learned to craft a resume, and cover letter. Her hard work and eagerness to improve herself led to TFCF offering her a position as a Peer Mentor, working with our clients to encourage their growth. “If I can do it, you can do it to!”

Despite her childhood of poverty, and being witness to alcoholism, a biology degree and nursing assistant position rose LaShana towards success. LaShana came to Time For Change Foundation after a gambling addiction, and schizoaffective disorder disrupted her life. Diagnosed in 2015, sudden homelessness and unemployment made her attempts to recieve treatment and medication difficult. The stress of her predicament, and the inability to attain stable housing created a cycle, where her efforts to improve her life would trigger mental health episodes, collapsing the progress she had made. After being hospitalized, and therefore medicated, she was advised to reach out to Time For Change Foundation. With mental health counseling, and the drive to make a better life for herself, Lashana is taking things one day at a time, developing healthy methods for coping with her mental health, and looking forward to the future.

Lashana’s Story
Elsa’s Story

The pandemic has impacted my family in a very simple way, loss of work hours. We have tried our best to work as much as possible to make ends meet, but there have been moments where we’ve come up short, and recently, our rent has been one of them. We are asking for help because we feel that we have no other choice, there is no way we could not complete the remaining half of the rent. I am currently not working due to a coworker who tested positive for COVID. My being near them was enough to be sent home to quarantine, without pay. We really appreciate the help we’ve gotten in these hard times.
