a library of our success

A person with a past
is a person with a future.

Our Place takes great pride in the thousands of young people who have passed through its doors en route to a brighter future.

Just as a family provides a life-long continuum of support and love, the Our Place staff always remain available for a member in need, regardless of their stage in life.

Our alumni never truly graduate. They remain beloved members of the Our Place family, true heroes who have overcome the impossible.
