GreenLight’s unique community of nonprofit leaders, philanthropists, business leaders, entrepreneurs, and venture capitalists will come together this fall for our third Cinnovation event, celebrating First Place for Youth.
Young people aging out of the foster care system face tremendous obstacles as they try to become self-sufficient adults. These young adults deserve support during this tough transition time, which is why GreenLight is bringing First Place for Youth to Cincinnati.
First Place for Youth is a youth-centered, trauma-informed approach to helping youth develop necessary skills for adulthood. Young people live independently in apartments and receive wraparound support, education services, employment services and other help to become self-sufficient.
First Place for Youth will ultimately serve 90% of young people aging out of foster care in Hamilton County each year.
