Just in Time for Foster Youth’s mission is to engage a caring community to help transition-age foster youth achieve self-sufficiency and well-being.

From the Just in Time for Foster Youth’s website:

Our Story

We often start with meeting an emergency need, such as rent assistance or a bus pass or setting up a first apartment. As we establish trust and build friendships, we address other needs such as money management, education support, and college graduation, job skills, networking, meaningful employment, reliable transportation, and health and well-being. We also build leadership from within — all of our Youth Services coordinators were once in foster care!

How can you help? We are collecting donations at our upcoming luncheon on Thursday, May 16, 2019 at The Fairmont Grand Del Mar. Don Wells, Executive Director for Just in Time for Foster Youth will be joining us as our special guest to share information on this important charity.

In-kind donation needs are listed here (such as furniture, towels, cookware and more - please note some items can be new versus gently used) or store gift cards in $25 or $50 increments are greatly appreciated.

PROST San Diego will also be donating $1000 in $50 gift cards!

Thank you!

We envision a future in which every youth leaving the foster care system has a community of caring adults waiting for them after 18. We believe consistent, long-term help from the heart is the foundation for the success of our youth so they can thrive and enjoy productive, satisfying lives.
