First Place AZ awarded Stardust Foundation Grant

The Stardust Foundation recently recognized the work of First Place AZ with a $1 million grant. The nonprofit works with adults with autism and other disabilities to find housing options and is currently constructing First Place Phoenix, a new apartment 56-unit community that will help to meet these needs.

“This gift leverages more than a decade of patient counsel and contributions by Stardust and Jerry Bisgrove, who impressed upon us early on the importance of connecting the dots needed to build a supportive, engaged community,” said Denise Resnik, First Place AZ founder and president/CEO. This grant adds to the $21.3 million capital campaign underway to fund the new multifamily community that will offer an array of supportive services in addition to the housing.
