Promise and Yvette talking and laughing

It’s about a life

I took a whole bottle of pills. I didn’t want to live any longer.

I'm back on my feet because of Places for People.

I’m a better me, I have my disease under control, I’m healthy and back on my feet.

Going Places Campaign

Featuring our Youth + Family Program!

Donate + Hear About Our Success Stories Today!

The “Going Places” Campaign is a year end campaign that benefits the persons served by Places for People.

Join us in celebrating a few of the success stories and partnerships that inspire us every day from our Youth and Family Program, and help us work towards continuing to see great results.

Donations will be collected from November 3, 2023 – December 31, 2023.

Hear from people that have utilized Youth + Family services.

I feel like Places for People has been the best thing that’s ever happened to me. I was going through a lot back then - still going through a lot. They are taking it step by step for me. I appreciate that.
