The PLACE for Empowerment

Our vision is that all young people will have what they need to overcome their perceived limitations and live fulfilling lives.

The PLACE (Program for Learning, Activities, Care and Encouragement) for Empowerment young adult access center is a space for young adults ages 16-26. We offer services and supports that focus on overall well-being, including developing a community of peers and engaging in a variety of individual and group supports. These include peer support, arts opportunities, social activities, and connections to mental health services, healthcare, housing, employment and education resources.  The center is free for young adults and funded by the Department of Mental Health.
