Celebrating 40 Years in the Community

We’re celebrating 40 years of committed service to supporting runway, homeless, and at-risk youth. As we continue to see a rise in need in the coastal Georgia region, the need for the types of services Park Place Outreach provides is becoming more and more essential. Contributions are critical, as such, Park Place has launched 40 for 40 Anniversary Campaign. Consider a reoccurring gift today to help those most vulnerable – at-risk youth.

Transitional Living Program Resident Joins the Marine Corps

Park Place Outreach is proud to share that one of our TLP participants, Zack, joined the Marine Corps!

Zack graduated from Savannah High School earlier this year after being a resident in Park Place’s Transitional Living Program since August 2021.

Earlier this week, Park Place staff saw him off as he left for training. He told them that he felt he never would have graduated high school or joined the Marines without the support of the Transitional Living Program. He’s confident that the skills he’s learned at Park Place will help him be successful in the future!

We’re so proud of Zack for graduating high school and wish him luck with this next big step of his journey!

Park Place Youth Gets Their First Job

Park Place Outreach is proud to share that one of our kids has gotten his first job! This youth has been involved with Park Place for quite some time and has benefited from both our Emergency Shelter and our F.A.M. program. For confidentiality reasons, we do not share the identities of our Emergency Shelter youth with the public.

This month, the Emergency Shelter team helped this youth obtain his photo identification card, which he needed to gain employment. He is now an employee at the Olde Pink House, one of our community partners.

Since 2013, the Olde Pink House has made a strong effort to employ our youth with on-the-job training. Currently, the Pink House employs four young people from Park Place, including two young people that Park Place assisted in 2013 who are still employed there.

We wish we could show you how excited our youth was to get his ID and his first job, but you’ll just have to take the Park Place team’s word for it!
