First Story is excited to continue bringing affordable homeownership to Central Oregon. Dedicated to giving families a hand-up to homeownership, First Story has a unique approach by directly partnering with builder Hayden Homes and providing zero-down, zero-interest 30-year home loans to hardworking, local families on newly constructed Hayden Homes.

Since First Story’s founding in 1998, the nonprofit has helped 99 families across Oregon, Washington, and Idaho break the cycle of generational poverty and achieve stability through affordable homeownership. Homes will be available to families below 80% of area median income who are graduates of NeighborImpact’s HomeSource Program. Learn more, apply for a home, and give at
