First place to build a life on my own.
Located in the heart of Phoenix, the 63-unit apartment property—with a suite of supports and amenities—is community connected and transit oriented. Residents with autism, Down syndrome, traumatic brain injury and other different abilities enjoy the comforts of home in a unique environment specially designed with attention to sensitivity to light and sound. Multiuse spaces on each floor promote community—involvement, interests, diversity, friendships.
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.
