2022 Annual Report

Last year, First Place for Youth and our network partners in Boston, New York, Mississippi, and Cincinnati served 1,507 young people; of those, 640 gained housing, education, and employment coaching, as well as comprehensive case management supports through our flagship My First Place program.

Other foster youth were connected to services designed to help them navigate their transition to adult lives through Independent Living Skills Programs or transitional housing providers. The youth we serve are among those with the greatest needs across the country. On average, before they come to First Place, our youth have spent more than eight years in the foster care system and lived in six different foster homes.

  • 97% avoided arrest while in the program
  • 97% avoided pregnancy while in the program
  • 91% of youth in the program exited to stable housing
  • 86% earned or progressed towards a high school diploma
  • 85% obtained employment while in the program
  • 81% of eligible youth enrolled in post-secondary education
