Ready to Launch Case Statement

A Time to Act

As much as First Place for Youth has accomplished, there is still a significant amount of work to be done. There are still thousands of foster kids turning 18 every year with no place to call home, wondering where their next meal will come from, and feeling alone in the world.

Because of our significant success and achievements, First Place is uniquely poised to make a difference on a grander scale.

Now is not the time to be complacent, it is time to be courageous.

No other organization has a vision as big or as bold. No other organization has our level of proven effectiveness. First Place is committed to step boldly forward and help solve a major national problem that is costing thousands of young lives and billions of dollars. With the solution in hand, it is time to act. With your investment, we are ready to launch the next big phase of First Place for Youth.
