My Place is for young people, 16-23 year olds, who are in chronic crisis due to homelessness, insufficient education, joblessness, mental health disability and other at-risk factors.

Comprehensive services include:
* Life coaching
* HS/GED completion
* Workforce development wages
* Independent housing
* Matched savings

Thanks to many supporters, My Place had a monumental 2012. The focus shifted from emergency shelter for older homeless and at-risk youth to
adulthood modeling.

Through My Place, they are acquiring job skills, life skills and paving the way towards a bright,
self-sufficient future!

In order to fund My Place, a social enterprise called My Gluten-Free Bread Co. was launched in March 2012. After much research was gathered along with consultations with local hospitals, dieticians, and the Celiac association, My Place founders decided to open My GF Bread Co to train and/or employ youth, and more importantly, to begin them on a sustainable career path. They don’t hire youth to bake bread, but bake bread to hire youth.

This is a ground-breaking, state demonstration project to end youth hopelessness and exodus from rural counties.
