The mission of First Place is to help foster youth build the skills they need to make a successful transition to self-sufficiency and responsible adulthood.

We believe that all young people in foster care have the potential to achieve long-term success in adulthood, and we envision a world where the disparities between them and the general population have been eliminated. First Place is a national leader in providing evidence-based direct support, increasing awareness, changing perceptions, and building a movement to make this vision a reality.
