We’re Giving Thanks for You!

A Time for Community 

While we cannot be together around a table with our young people this year, it’s times like these that make all of us at First Place especially grateful to be part of their lives.

In a year of change and challenge, our young people continue to inspire us with their resilience and determination. We are so honored to be a part of their journey, and we couldn’t do it without supporters like you.

Thank you for being a part of the First Place community.

Distanced but Connected for the Holidays

Over the last week, First Place has delivered hundreds of ready-to-eat meals to our young people, inviting them to come together for virtual Thanksgiving parties. We’ll continue offering opportunities for connection and celebration throughout the holiday season.
