First Place for Youth
Jun 8, 2018
First Place for Youth was among those honored at the Jewish Community Foundation of Los Angeles’ “Your Time to Shine” event in May. The evening recognized and honored the work being done by the grantees of the Foundation’s General Community Grants program to support at-risk individuals and communities in Los Angeles.
The Foundation’s General Community Grants program has provided over $2 million dollars to organizations in the Los Angeles are over the last decade, and First Place is proud to be among those organizations benefiting from the Foundation’s support. Our Interim CEO, Hellen Hong, was present representing First Place.
Check out the video from the Foundation to see highlights from the evening and hear from Hellen and other grantee representatives about why this kind of community support matters.
