“I am humbled and honored” Ms. Carter said when she was informed that she would be recognized for her work. Kim Carter started Time for Change Foundation in her garage as a one women organization in 2002 with one shelter with 6 beds. Today, Time for Change Foundation has a staff of 11, a total housing capacity of 114 annually along with evidence-based programs and supportive services that provide communities with the tools to recover from homelessness, drug addiction, mental and physical abuse, family separation and the effects of incarceration.
