  • We Build HOPE

    For over 15 years, First Story has been providing home ownership opportunities in Hayden Homes communities to deserving families.  The public nonprofit has come a long way since 1998! In 2014 it dedicated its 53rd home and celebrated over $800,000 in community giving.


    Over 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 Home Buyer Program serves individuals and families through new home construction and other home ownership opportunities.
