Assemblyman Ramos Donates His San Bernardino Restaurant To The Time For Change Foundation

Assemblyman James C. Ramos has donated his Yum Yum Restaurant in San Bernardino to the Time for Change Foundation
“This is exactly what our community needs, and the Time for Change Foundation is in a prime position to use it as part of an economic development hub,” said Time for Change Foundation Executive Director Vanessa Perez in a press release posted to the foundation’s website.
Ramos assigned ownership of the restaurant to the foundation in August, according to the press release.
“COVID-19 has only increased the dilemmas of homelessness, job loss and lack of access to health services,” Ramos said. “The people at Time For Change are filling an essential need in our community, and I am privileged to help them in the great work they do to uplift the most vulnerable in our society.”
The Time for Change Foundation has been active in the San Bernardino area since 2002
“Empowering women and ensuring that families are thriving is at the heart of what we do,” Perez said. “According to the State of Women in the Inland Empire report from the University of Riverside overall, in the Inland Empire, black women are at a 24 percent poverty rate and Hispanic women are at a 22 percent poverty rate. We are taking time to plan how best to use the building in order to increase the self-sufficiency of those seeking our services. “Our goal is to build successful futures and create economic security.”
Ramos, a former chairman of the San Manuel Band of Mission Indians, was elected Third District San Bernardino County Supervisor in 2012. He was reelected to that post in 2016. In 2018, he ran successfully for the California Assembly in the 40th District. He was reelected to the Assembly this year.
