• We Build Your Dreams

    First Story is excited to be granting homes in Redmond, Oregon, Albany, Oregon and Kennewick, Washington. A no-interest and no-down payment First Story mortgage will change the lives of six families this year.

  • We Build HOPE

    For the last 15 years, First Story has been providing home ownership opportunities in Hayden Homes communities to deserving lower-income families.  The public nonprofit has come a long way since 1998! In 2014 it will dedicate its 50th home and celebrate over $800,000 in community giving.

  • We Build COMMUNITIES

    Fifteen years ago a handful of employees at Hayden Homes decided to organize the company‚Äôs community giving efforts and started by giving holiday gift baskets to families in need.   In that moment, First Story was born.  It is no exaggeration to say that, even today, the employees at Hayden Homes are the heart and soul of First Story.

Building Homes, Communities & a Sense of Hope Since 1998

First Story's Housing Grant program serves low to moderate income families through new home construction and other home ownership opportunities.
