First Place for Youth offers our thanks to the Jewish Community Foundation of Los Angeles. The Foundation’s two-year, $70,000 grant supports of our Steps to Success education and employment program. Through this grant, we will be able to expand our reach in Los Angeles and more provide foster youth with critical support services that help them on the path to independence and success.
