The Arizona Department of Housing has honored First Place AZ with the 2019 Housing Hero Award for its Innovative Supportive Housing Program and pioneering approach to housing for special populations, specifically for adults with autism.

First Place AZ is revolutionizing residential models and creating lasting social impact on a global scale through a visionary goal to ensure that housing and community options are as bountiful for people with autism and other neuro-diversities as they are for everyone else.  

“First Place AZ represents the best efforts of local champions who are committed to creatively solving housing problems in Arizona,” says Carol Ditmore, director of the Arizona Department of Housing. “First Place’s approach to fostering a community, empowering residents to become more independent and engaging public, private, philanthropic and nonprofit sectors to fuel a new wave of housing options for this population is truly innovative.”
