We Need Your Help
California is clearly experiencing a housing crisis, we are seeing families and individuals living from their cars and cheap motels. Even the employed can not afford the cost of rent unless they are earning at least six figure income. Timelist has decided to take active steps to alleviate this problem but we can not do it without you. We have a program model that works borrowing from our current reentry housing program. Without funding this program can not survive, so we are asking for champions that are willing to become monthly donors. every little bit helps, urge people to DONATE, your family, co-workers and congregations, anyone that you know who care about this housing crisis.
Continue building, acquiring homes below market rate, leasing housing units/properties
Manage facilities with live-in staff who will operate as case/housing managers
Create a built in program component that offers skills development, resume' support and other training's
Network with advocacy groups with a focus on housing and employment equity and other related issues
Fundraising and grow donor specific support
The key to our success and expansion is having people like you working to see that our message of hope reaches the masses. We believe that we possess the blueprint that will impact families across the nation impacted by incarceration. However, we can not do it without monetary donations and opportunities to speak to your networks, peers, religious communities and so on. Once you hear our story, we believe that you will be convinced that we must replicate this model. Please invite us to speak or present our program at your next event. In the meantime, please donate generously.

While Yusef-Andre Wiley was still incarcerated, his father Sampson Wiley was the ears, eyes and strongest advocate for this program. It was he and his sister Donna Johnson who generated all of the certificates for each workshop, typing all of the curriculum that was being hand written from behind the walls. Without Sampson and Donna, we do not know how this work would have made it to the community as a non-profit organization today.
