First Place Family Center

First Place Family Center (FPFC) is St. Vincent de Paul’s low-barrier emergency access day center for families experiencing homelessness in Lane County. FPFC addresses basic needs and provides essential social services to families with children under age 18. 

Each day, approximately 100 parents, youth, and children pass through our facilities. FPFC is the gateway to the Night Shelter Annex.

First Place Family Center has moved! To better serve our families, all drop-in day services such as showers, food, and childcare have been shifted to one central location — the First Place Annex located at 4060 W. Amazon Drive, Eugene, Ore. Check out the blog post HERE for more information.
