WHY WE DO IT

The lack of affordable housing is holding families back and causing deep problems.

Poverty. Homelessness. Educational disparities.

But through affordable homeownership the lives of families are changed forever.

By giving neighbors a hand-up to homeownership, First Story is helping write new chapters.

Financial stability. Asset-building. Achievement of dreams.

This is why we do it.

Who  we serve

Our model is focused on removing barriers and providing access to the life-changing value of homeownership for diverse community members.
