ORGANIZATION: Homes First

Garden Beds

  1. Do you enjoy being outside?
  2. Do you like seeing a yard that is well taken-care-of?

If you answered yes to any of those questions then this is the opportunity for you!

Homes First seeks individual or groups of volunteers to adopt a home in our portfolio and help the less-able tenants to care for their yard. This could include:

  • Regular mowing & edging
  • Cleaning up the flower beds at the beginning of the spring season
  • Trimming back trees & shrubs



Sometimes, our tenants have physical disabilities that make it impossible for them to maintain their own yards.

Could you or a group (R otary, Kiwanis, Lions, communities of faith etc.) take on one house for a year and complete their yard care?

About Homes First

Location:

5203 Lacey Blvd SE, Ste.A, Lacey, WA 98503, US

Mission Statement

Homes First creates and maintain safe, healthy, and affordable rental homes for those who need them most.

Description

Homes First, a stand-alone 501C(3) nonprofit, works to develop, own and manage affordable housing for lower income Thurston County residents unable to compete in today’s housing market. It seeks to encourage and use broad public and private participation and resources to reach its goal.

Formed in April 1990, Homes First grew out of a task force concerned about the homeless, whose members joined with other community residents concerned about the problem of affordable housing. Homes First is now working to increase the supply of affordable housing for community members in need.

Since 1990, Homes First has been acquiring, renovating, and preserving affordable rental housing for low income families, individuals, and people with special needs. Currently we own and manage 110 rental units. Income from rents goes to maintain the housing, provide staff oversight, and help fund future affordable housing projects.
