This year marks the 10th anniversary for Just in Time for Foster Youth. PEERS has been a dedicated partner for JIT for two years, and in light of this anniversary we have renewed and extended our partnership into the future. Below, PEERS president Bill Malloy with JIT managing directors ahead of the JIT 10th Anniversary Celebration- get involved by clicking here!
The PEERS Network showed it’s continued support of the Challenged Athletes Foundation (CAF) by taking on the 20th annual San Diego Triathlon Challenge, “the best day in triathlon.” Bill, Brian, Hany, Greg, Derek, Mitch, and Gregg were among the 750 participants in this year’s race, 200 of whom were challenged athletes. The 2012 San Diego Triathlon Challenge raised nearly $1.4 million for the Challenged Athletes Foundation to fund adaptive sports equipment, training and competition expenses for individuals with physical challenges so they can live full and active lifestyles.
We are pleased to announce that through your generosity and continued support, the 4th Annual PEERS Gala benefiting Just in Time for Foster Youth exceeded expectations again. With approximately 400 guests in attendance, we succeeded in raising more than $180,000 to assist transitioning foster youth in the San Diego community – bringing our total raised for Just in Time for Foster Youth to over $300,000. We could not have done it without your help!
These funds will enable JIT to assist hundreds of transitioning foster youth with many basic necessities including food cards, school supplies, first home basics, clothing and transportation.
On behalf of the PEERS Network we would like to extend our sincere gratitude to our generous sponsors, guests, vendors, donors and volunteers. We would also like to extend a special thank you to the venue host, Mr. and Mrs. Lerach, the JIT Team and to co-chairs Dan and Jaime Feder.

Boys to Men gives boys a community of mentors and role models! Boys to Men’s school mentoring program is a community based mentoring model focused on middle school and high school boys at risk of academic failure. Every week groups of dedicated Boys to Men mentors show up at middle schools and high schools to give boys a community of mentors who listen, encourage and believe in them. This approach is drawing high praise from school principals, administrators and teachers for its documented ability to improve boy’s grades, reduce discipline issues and keep boys from dropping out of school.
When we invest in our boys, and support them at this critical time, the payback will last a lifetime!
A formal affair with live and DJ entertainment, live and silent auction items including private villas in the U.S., Canada and Europe, wellness and beauty packages, restaurants and entertainment and many more incredible items to bid on.

The PEERS Network spent a day at Father Joe’s Village in downtown San Diego learning about the organization and meeting with the members and board. Father Joe’s mission is to help our neighbors in need. They provide a “Continuum of Care” that promotes a pathway to self-sufficiency and independence. The most amazing thing about Father Joe’s organization is the amazing size and complexity of the services they provide and the real estate they own. The PEERS goal is to help this organization in the different ways that we have influence. We found out during the visit that one of the first and most immediate needs were the need for clothing for people going on job interviews. Since the meeting we have collected over $10,000 worth of clothing that the village members can use when they go on job interviews!
