First place to build an adult life.
Located in the heart of Phoenix, the 55-unit First Place–Phoenix apartment property is designed to be community connected, transit oriented and sustained by a suite of supports and amenities. Residents with autism and other special abilities enjoy the comforts of home without the distractions that can make life challenging. The physical environment is specially designed to consider sensitivity to light and sound, with various, multi-use spaces for promoting community.
The First Place–Phoenix team may recommend additional, external services based on an individual resident’s needs.
To help maximize independence, these optional services—funded through private pay, private insurance and/or public resources—are provided by outside agencies and providers representing valued First Place collaborators.
First Place is not a group home or a licensed, congregate care or assisted living facility, and is not designed for those who require the support of a medical home.
