Become a First Place Landlord

May 22, 2019

First Place is a highly supportive transitional living Preble Street program where young people (16-21) learn to live independently. The program supports housing for young people who have the will and the drive to develop the skills to succeed.


  • Rent: We guarantee 100% rental payment for the duration of the lease.
  • Support: Staff meet with the youth 1-3 times a week to continue developing independent living skills.
  • Home visits: A First Place representative visits at least weekly to ensure the apartment is clean and there are no maintenance needs.
  • Damage/Security Deposit: Preble Street provides a full security deposit as well as coverage of damages outside of “normal wear and tear” when needed.
