Just in Time Foster youth
Just in Time for Foster Youth engages a caring community to help transitioning foster youth achieve self-sufficiency and well-being.
We envision 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 that they can thrive and enjoy productive, satisfying lives.
Voices for Children
Voices for Children transforms the lives of abused children by providing them with volunteer Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASAs). We believe that every child deserves a safe and permanent home, and to that end, will review and monitor every court file in the system, provide a CASA to every child in the foster care system who needs one, and advocate to improve the lives of foster children.
Starfish Asset Fund
We help transitioning foster youth achieve self-sufficiency by providing low interest rate loans for automobile purchases, apartment security deposits and credit building. The Starfish model of coupling the loans with financial education classes achieves financial independence, increased financial literacy and extremely low default rates that are currently below 0.1%. Withhout the support, many of these transitioning adults face challenges.
Walden Family Services
Walden Family Services, a private, non-profit California corporation, was founded in 1976 to provide quality care for abused and neglected children in residential group homes. In 1983, Walden transitioned into foster care and pioneered one of California’s first “Treatment Foster Care” programs to offer children and teenagers an alternative to group home placements. Walden expanded its foster care program in 1994 to include services for children with developmental disabilities.
