Building a better life

Katelyn and son 2014 2


Katlyn is a friendly, intelligent and vibrant 20 year-old, with a three-year-old son. She is full of joy and laughter, yet she is serious when it comes to taking care of her family. Her own childhood was far from that __ she bounced around from foster home to foster home and became pregnant at 16.

Looking for stability and support, with her son as her greatest motivation, Katlyn found First Place. Here, she receives personal support that is helping her achieve independence and finish her degree at California State University-East Bay. Katlyn’s determined that her son shares her values and understands the importance of working hard in school.
