First Place for Youth supports foster kids as they learn to support themselves.

When a child’s family can’t be there for them, it leaves a big gap. It can be hard for foster kids to find their way as adults. Without a family to lean on, many struggle in school and have trouble finding a job. Some even end up homeless.

At First Place for Youth, we know that more is possible for these young people. With the community’s support, we help them reach their full potential in school, work, and life.
