Our Mission

Just in Time for Foster Youth’s mission is to engage a caring community to help transition-age foster youth achieve self-sufficiency and well-being.

Our Vision

Just in Time for Foster Youth envisions 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.

Our Core Values

We are open, honest and courageous, practicing confident vulnerability even in difficult circumstances.

Collaboration:

We think outside the box to find the WIN-WIN outcome together and achieve the best solution for all involved.

Inclusion:

We embrace all people with compassion, honoring their value and celebrating their unique identities. I matter, you matter.

Innovation:

We adjust to new challenges and constant change, finding creative ways to support continuous growth and improvement. 

Inquiry:

We seek to understand first and ask powerful questions to discover what is truly needed.

Inspiration:

We engage in a way that inspires our youth, volunteers and our community to reach their full potential.

Ownership:

We hold ourselves accountable and consistently follow through on our words, actions, promises and commitments.
