Mountainside – On March 13th a room dedication was held at Imagine in honor and memory of Justin Pasquariello who died suddenly on July 27, 2015.  Justin’s friends established The JustinTime Foundation in his name.  Established in 2015 in memory of Justin, the foundation strives to provide timely support for children/families who suffer an unexpected loss of a parent(s).  After the death of Justin, whose wife and children attend Imagine, his friends rallied around and formed this foundation in his name to carry on his legacy of kindness, compassion and good works.  The foundation made a three year commitment to Imagine of $75,000 to name one of our parent peer support groups rooms Justin's Room.  The funding provides support for the over 275 children and adults currently attending Imagine on five different Nights of Support.  

“Our recent visit to the Imagine Center blew me away,” said Robert Sprague, Trustee of the Justin Time Foundation.  I was instantly confident that Justin’s strong spirit will provide comfort to anyone who visits his room. The Justin Time Family couldn’t be more excited to partner with such an amazing organization filled with very special people.”  

“We are so grateful to the Justin Time Foundation and Justin’s friends and family, for their great generosity” said Mary Robinson, Imagine’s Executive Director.  “It is easy to see the kind of man Justin was based on the love and outpouring of support from Justin’s friends, family, and community.  They inspire us all and we are proud to be associated with The Justin Time Foundation.”
