Vice President of Housing & Supportive Services
Regional Director of Southern California Programs
Since 2010, First Place for Youth has helped thousands of young people in Los Angeles County make the transition from foster care to self-sufficient adult lives.
Each year, through our My First Place™ program, we offer about 200 young people safe places to call home, comprehensive wraparound services, and education and career supports to help them step into independence with confidence, equipped with the skills to succeed. Nearly all young adults served are Black, indigenous, or people of color and one out of five have children of their own.
In addition to our office locations, First Place oversees single-site housing locations in Santa Monica, Silver Lake, and Compton, where youth in residence have access to on-site support from First Place staff.
