Engages a caring community to help transitioning foster youth achieve self-sufficiency and well-being. At age 18, foster youth leave the Juvenile Court system without essential family support, leaving them at risk of being homeless, unemployed, and under-educated. Only too often they plunge onto a path of lifelong dependence or prison. JIT envisions a future where every youth leaving the foster care system has a community of caring adults waiting for them after 18.  This is done through consistent relationships and emergency resources provided by individuals, agencies, businesses and foundations that share our core values and mission.  http://jitfosteryouth.org/
