In 2016, Justin and his wife Kourtney founded the Justin Turner Foundation whose mission is to support homeless veterans, children (and their families) battling life-altering illnesses and diseases and various youth baseball organizations.
Through their efforts, the Dream Center is able to support and provide housing for 26 male veterans. Following the success of the program, the Turners were able to assist with the opening of the female Veterans programs, which provides housing and support for 18 women. Additionally, since its' founding, the JTF has provided over 70,000 toys and 14,000 bicycles to children in the Los Angeles area through its' holiday giving efforts.
JTF partnered with the Dream Center through the Covid-19 pandemic to assist their drive-thru & walk-up food & essentials line. In an effort to support both local restaurants & Angelinos in need, JTF placed bulk meal orders to be distributed on the daily line throughout 2020. Also, Justin & Kourtney have been a major supporter and participant of the AM570 Radio-a-Thon supporting the Paralyzed Veterans of America and the DC Veterans Program. Turner not only makes community appearances on behalf of the Dodgers, but frequently schedules his own visits to CHLA, Cedars-Sinai, UCLA Mattel Children's Hospital and the Dream Center.
