Together we build homes and so much more

Behind every name of a First Story family is a real story – the tale of a hardworking family ready for more than a hand-out. A family determined to change their destiny through home ownership. A gift to First Story is a springboard towards financial freedom for these families, a solution to the affordable housing crisis hurting so many communities across the Northwest, and a key to breaking generational poverty.

First Story is funded 100% by individuals and companies like you! The non-profit receives no government funding to ensure its housing solutions always reach the people who need them most.  It can be overwhelming worrying about how to help deserving families in need; it turns out, people helping people is the best way. Give today!
