MY FIRST HOME
Gaylord-Hansen has partnered with Just in Time, an amazing organization that helps transition-age foster youth achieve self-sufficiency and well-being.
We are truly honored to be support their My First Home program, which aims to provide new and gently-used furniture to 18-26 year olds who were in the foster care system so they can furnish their first home.

Just in Time’s mission is to engage a caring community to help transition-age foster youth achieve self-sufficiency and well-being.
Just in Time envisions a future in which every youth leaving the foster care system has a community of caring adults waiting for them after 18. They 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.
Just in Time often starts with meeting an emergency need, such as rent assistance or a bus pass or setting up a first apartment. As they establish trust and build friendships, they address other needs such as money management, education support, and college graduation, job skills, networking, meaningful employment, reliable transportation, and health and well-being. They also build leadership from within — all of their Youth Services coordinators were once in foster care!
