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 house over 26 veterans and planning the opening of a women's home for veterans. Additionally, since its' founding, the JTF has provided over 10,000 toys and 2,000 bicycles to children in the Los Angeles area through its' holiday giving efforts.
JTF has also recently partnered up with the 17Strong Foundation, which is built on giving patients that are recovering from a life-altering illness a "victory trip" of their choice. JTF is also working with the Yokota Air Base in Fussa, Japan to help create a baseball league for U.S. military children. Also, Justin has 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, Mattel Children's Hospital and the Dream Center.
