Review for JUST IN TIME FOR FOSTER YOUTH, San Diego, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars

I have volunteered for "My First Home for the Holidays", "College and Career Bound", and the year-round program, "My First Home". Now, I find myself even more involved serving on the Board of Directors. Helping a youth establish their first home is a happy and emotional experience for everyone involved. Helping a deserving young adult begin or maintain their education/career by giving him/her the tools they need for success (such as, a laptop, printer, welding tools etc) is amazing!! This is little recognized population most of whom are strong and worthy individuals who with a little help and caring will grow into happy, healthy, contributing members of society. They are SO WORTH THE INVESTMENT OF TIME AND ATTENTION. What a feel good!!!
