Support children and families this Spring

First Place Annex is a low barrier shelter and wraparound case management program for families experiencing homelessness in Lane County. It includes: The Night Shelter, First Place Family Center, and First Place Kids.

Support First Place Kids with a donation to help build a new playground at the Annex! Infants confined to living in cars and car seats experience delays in motor skills and development. Children who don’t have opportunities to play miss out on exercise, fresh air, and building social skills.

With your help, unhoused children will be provide with safe, consistent opportunities to exercise, play, and explore outdoors that they may not otherwise have.  Your support will help grow in pre-literacy skills, ability focus, and emotional regulation in children.
