Our Partners for Collaborative Impact

What makes Just in Time unique is that it welcomes former foster youth into a broad Community of peers and adults who truly care about their well-being and success. In addition to our 600+ volunteers, Just in Time has formed collaborative relationships throughout San Diego County. We believe Collaboration is the key to substantive, transformative change, both in the lives of the youth we serve and in the welfare of our community.



Foster Youth Transitions Collaborative (FYTC)
San Diego Center for Children, Voices for Children, Just in Time for Foster Youth, and the San Diego Foundation
FYTC is designed to bridge the gap between youth in care and youth in transition with a portable and evolving plan that is tied to resources and relationships after emancipation.

North County Lifeline & Just in Time for Foster Youth
This partnership was formed to create greater access to services for North County San Diego youth with a welcoming drop-in center located in Vista.

Stepping Stone of San Diego & Just in Time for Foster Youth
This partnership has been instrumental in the creation of Rise to Resilience, an innovative approach to empower JIT participants by mitigating the impacts of Adverse Childhood Experiences and building resilience.

JIT has also taken a leadership role in the following initiatives to create systemic change and a better future for all young people in San Diego County:

Fostering Futures Initiative (founded by Leslye Lyons)
San Diego County Extended Foster Care (EFC) Survey to increase access to resources for youth in EFC.

Child Welfare Services Advisory & Workgroups (formed by the San Diego County Board of Supervisors)
Recommendations and sub-committees to improve outcomes for children and youth in foster care.
