Review for Just in Time for Foster Youth, San Diego, CA, USA
Just in Time has been there for me when I had no one else to turn to. Most people turn to their families when there's an emergency - broken bones, stranded vehicles, accidental overspending (we've all been there). Where do you turn when you don't have that traditional family model to rely on? Just in Time. When my car needed new tires so I could make it to work - Just in Time was there to help me pick up the bill. When I ran out of money for food (while supporting myself through college), Just in Time was there to ensure I had what I needed. When I needed assistance for law school applications and, finally, for the deposit to attend the law school of my dreams, it was Just in Time that helped me through.
But the organization is more than just financial support - it's emotional. The community of members at Just in Time provides a support system that many of us never had. Someone to lean on. Someone who understands! There is no number of stars which can do that justice.
I'm graduating from law school this Spring. I could not have done it with out Just in Time.
