A CELEBRATION OF HEART AND HOME with First Place for Youth

First Place for Youth raises more than $600,000 for transition-age foster youth.

First Place for Youth, the nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting foster youth in their transition to adulthood, raised more than $600,000 for transition-age foster youth at A Celebration of Heart and Home, its annual fundraiser gala at Oracle Park in San Francisco. Held during National Foster Care Month, the event honored the San Francisco Giants, Visa Foundation, Assembly member Phil Ting, and First Place for Youth Board Chair Nancy Heinen for their work in helping to end youth homelessness in the Bay Area. Proceeds support First Place for Youth’s essential work in assisting transition-age foster youth in the Bay Area and beyond. Since 1998, First Place for Youth’s programs have served more than 11,000 young people between the ages of 16 and 25 in the Bay Area, Los Angeles, and six other states around the country.
