At A Glance
Since 2009 we have worked with California inmates, we formed prison rehabilitation programs which are key to reintegration back to the community and ending mass incarceration. Once released from prison, we provide reentry services which are apart of our housing program. Housing for ex-felons allows for complete recovery and transition back into the workforce.

History of Timelist
Timeless, (once upon a time) was a group without a name. Originally, several prisoners serving life terms at Avenal State Prison came together to create a support base for inmates like themselves. The objective was to brainstorm on strategies that they could learn and use towards obtaining freedom through the parole board and/or the judicial process. This committed group would meet every Sunday on the recreation facility on the bleachers until word spread as their numbers began to grow. Through sharing case law related to life sentences and discussing self-help methods the group continued to come together and a few even gained their freedom. In 2007, the group decided to approach prison administrators with a proposal to establish the group as a legitimate program recognized by prison officials. Led by Yusef-Andre Wiley this is when the group became TIMELESS – A Lifer Support Group. As interest around rehabilitation grew Timeless decided to open its workshops to the entire inmate population and parolees. Timeless is a reminder to the human being that, if you are willing and the ability to think, “it is never too late to change” which became the tag line of our support group circles and courses designed to address the various social and cognitive behavioral problems many incarcerated individuals struggle with.
Reentry & Transformation
For legal reasons, Timeless changed to Timelist (its alternate name) because the name “Timeless” was already in use by companies/organizations. Of the 600+ clients served by Timelist, only 0.1% have re-offended.
The Timelist Group is committed to hiring from within, we believe that we must empower our participants in our program to become our next leaders, this is how we transform families and communities.
Hence, we need your continued support to provide these programs to our members, so please make a contribution today
Timelist Group would not exist without the patronage of these two individuals
Sampson J. Wiley
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.
