Sherlene's Charity Organization:

A Time To Learn Academy, Inc



What is a H.E.L.P. Forward Program to Us?



Motto: Helping You Where You Are.

Vision: Simply a way for me to give your stuff, your charity donations, that you give to me to others in a more formally/legally way. A 5013c community resource of free or low-fee services, including financial or item charity provided by the general public to distribute to families and individuals in need.


In addition, to provide services and resources to those who are new middle-incomers to avoid culture shock or to maintain existing middle-incomers, or to help in transitioning to the low, higher-income socio-economic status.  This non-profit's "Helping Each Loving Person Forward" programs focus on offering public projects that improve home life and/or earning goals of families and individuals.

Mission: To decrease external, social dysfunction of wasting good stuff--usable new or gently-worn products--by being an agency connector of available resources and services. To distribute goods and materials to the general public with a fine arts and business focus. To share job ads to further career exploration of jobseekers and the general public. To distribute money to American homeowners and renters who are in need of housing-expense assistance to live in a consistent dwelling place when such finances are available.


Our Values: Freedom. Respect. Faith. Courage. Positive Work Ethic. Equality.
