First Place for Youth
First Place targets its services to 17 to 24-year-olds who are preparing to “age out” or who have recently aged out of foster care. It has a 24 month limit. Once discharged from care, the vast majority of these young adults stop receiving county-funded foster care services. Moreover, there are limited community-based services available. Instead of receiving support and guidance during this critical transition, emancipated foster youth are without housing, a source of income, adult encouragement, or community support.
