Time for Change Foundation
Since 2002 Time for Change Foundation (TFCF) has been dedicated to helping homeless women and children achieve self-sufficiency by using an array of evidenced-based practices coupled with a strength-based approach to address their needs. They assist families and individuals with the skills necessary to recover from the effects of homelessness, addiction, incarceration, mental and physical abuse.
Housing status is a powerful indicator of overall health status. TFCF operates two emergency shelters, 13 units of permanent supportive housing, and a 7-unit affordable housing building. Supportive services include strength-based case management, drug and alcohol counseling, transportation, life skills education, parenting education, financial education and money management, healthcare access, family reunification, leadership development, employment training, and childcare assistance.
Through the Housing and Supportive Services Program TFCF provides families with rental payment assistance enabling families to keep their homes, stay together, and more women and children are prevented from becoming homeless. Families in need of rental payment assistance are assessed, supported through a 3-6 months stabilization/ self-sufficiency plan, and connected to mainstream services.
Women also experience leadership development and are empowered to be the change they want to be. They learn leadership skills that allow them to take control over their lives as well as at their workplaces, neighborhoods and communities.
