Just In Time for Foster Youth (JIT) provides emancipated foster youth with opportunities for self-sufficiency through emergency support, essential resources, and caring personal guidance at critical junctures on their path to independence.
JIT intervenes at critical junctures when a little help can make the difference between a perilous and a promising young life. It is the only volunteer-driven organization in San Diego to assist all former foster youth with is the resources needed to ensure school, job, and life success.
Although they may receive subsidized housing or scholarships from other sources, former foster youth lack essential resources. JIT steps in with the daily ingredients a family might offer: immediate emergency financial aid, basic home furnishings and, most importantly, the continuous personal connection essential to long-term results.
That’s why they focus on all former foster youth, regardless of other program participation — as long as they are striving for self-sufficiency by attending college/vocational school and/or working a significant number of hours.
The Retirement Group and the TRG Team (John Jastremski, Jeremy Keating, Erik Larsen, Frank Esposito, Brent Wolf, Marvin King, Patrick Ray, and Robert Welsch) proudly support Just In Time for Foster Youth.
