First Place serves families in crisis by providing excellent culturally competent education, housing and support services enabling families to achieve permanent stability.
First Place seeks to empower low-income families and their children to achieve self-sufficiency.
Since 1989, First Place has been a community leader, statewide advocate and national model for breaking the cycle of poverty.
We create an empowering environment for families struggling to overcome poverty which inspires them to obtain and maintain permanent housing and achieve educational and career goals to bring stability to their lives.
