Review for Just In Time For Foster Youth, San Diego, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

When I first realized that foster youth had to learn how to become self-sufficient adults with little or no family support, I was shocked. I remembered how much help I gave to my children in their late teens and early twenties. When I got involved with Just In Time For Foster Youth, I was surprised to see how motivated these youth were and how a little help went a long way! Here we have these youth without resources and a support system and then we have a community of of people with tons of resources and a willingness to help - Just In Time brings them together.
