First Place for Youth is the largest agency in California dedicated exclusively to providing access to affordable housing and resources for transition-age foster youth and has grown to become a nationally recognized model. Founded in 1998, First Place seeks to help foster youth build the skills they need to make a successful transition to self-sufficiency and responsible adulthood. Through its flagship program, My First Place™, and other supporting programs, First Place supports at-risk foster youth at a critical time in their lives when they are learning to support themselves. We currently serve youth in six California counties (Alameda, San Francisco, Contra Costa, Santa Clara, Solano and Los Angeles). In Fiscal Year 2019, we served 1,715 youth overall and provided housing and intensive support services through the My First Place program to 654 youth.

First Place for Youth envisions a future where the disparities between foster youth and their non-foster care peers are eliminated. In addition to results-driven direct service delivery, First Place advocates for policies that improve the lives of foster kids. The lessons we learn through our direct service work drive our advocacy efforts, and our advocacy creates a context in which our direct services can succeed.
