Plaza Home Mortgage presents donations to Just In Time For Foster YouthPlaza Home Mortgage announced its sponsorship of Just in Time for Foster Youth, a San Diego-based organization dedicated to helping transition-age foster youth between the ages of 18-26 achieve independence and self-sufficiency.

As part of its support of JIT, Plaza will be a silver sponsor of JIT’s Empower Walk the Talk fundraiser, scheduled for June 19. This year’s virtual event will be the 8th annual celebratory fundraiser designed to raise money and resources for youth participants, helping them with emergency basic needs (food, rent, etc.), education, employment, transportation and mental health. Later this year, Plaza will also support the organization by organizing a My First Home Mini Drive, which will raise donations of cash and home goods (furniture, appliances, etc.), to help young adults transition out of the foster system and furnish and settle into their own homes.

JIT was founded in 2003 by Jeanette Day, Diane Cox, and Louarn Sorkin with the vision of supporting and uplifting foster youths. Today, JIT has more than 800 transition-aged youth participants that it is helping transition to living independently through a variety of services and programs. Sponsorships from companies like Plaza help the organization provide rental assistance, financial education, job training, transportation, college preparation, work readiness programs and more – all resources that are especially critical during the pandemic.

“The success of our organization and the youth we serve is only possible with the support of community partners like Plaza Home Mortgage." said Just in Time chief empowerment officer, Don Wells.

In addition to its sponsorships, Plaza Home Mortgage is also encouraging its associates to learn more about Just in Time for Foster Youth’s mission and to volunteer as mentors and get involved with the organization.

“Just in Time for Foster Youth is an admirable organization dedicated to helping young adults excel and successfully manage their lives after leaving foster care,” said James Cutri, co-founder and vice chairman at Plaza Home Mortgage.
