First Place is proud to partner with Mercy housing to provide on-site services at their new apartment complex at 1100 Ocean Avenue. This complex has 25 units designated for homeless young people ages 18 – 24. Charisma Aaron is one of these young people. She spent years in the foster care system but despite the challenge, is now attending college and says having this stability will make a difference.
