In our FY2020 Annual Gratitude Report, we prove that “We’re Still Here” as we look back at an series of accomplishments that go higher than any aspirations we could have imagined, especially in a COVID-19 environment. It includes stories of youth whose exceptional courage and resilience continue to motivate us to do more. You’ll also catch up with JIT alumni and see powerful evidence of how nearly 800 Just in Time Volunteers, more than 150 Collaborations, and hundreds of dedicated Investors empowered 826 young people in transition to become Confident, Capable and Connected!
If you live in San Diego County, are between ages 18-26 and have EVER spent time in foster care, you are eligible to receive JIT services.

Make an Impact
Help break the cycle of foster care by making an investment in the futures of the youth we serve. We offer many ways to give!
JIT’s mission is to engage a caring community to help transition age foster youth achieve self-sufficiency and well-being.
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.
