Since 2010, First Place for Youth has helped hundreds of young people in Los Angeles County make the transition from foster care to self-sufficient adulthood.
Through our My First Place™ program, we provide young people—ages 18 to 24—with a safe place to call home, comprehensive wraparound services, and education and career supports to help them step into independence with confidence, equipped with the skills to succeed.
