Residents and Transition Academy students at First Place–Phoenix are proudly proving that adults with autism and/or other intellectual/developmental disabilities can thrive independently in a home they call their own.

See the new First Place Global Leadership Institute website.



Supportive housing for adults with autism, Down syndrome and other neurodiversities with all the benefits of community-connected, independent living.

Transition Academy

A structured clinical program designed for adults with autism that helps build crucial independent living and career-readiness skills.
“The Transition Academy has helped me become more independent in my daily life. I used to get rides from my parents. Now I can get around on my own. One of my personal goals is to have a place of my own and get a job. I've been practicing interview questions a lot. I might have an interview coming soon!”
