Depending on how you do your research, you will find dozens – if not hundreds – of nonprofits in the South Sound region, all doing a wide range of things to try and help make this a better place to live. None, however, does what Homes First does.
Perhaps you’ve never heard of Homes First? Well, that should change if you believe that everyone deserves a place to call home. No matter what we look like: our race, our age, our household size, if we have a disability, are a veteran, or are a person in recovery, everybody needs a safe place to call home.
This extra special organization, launched here in 1990, because of the unique foresight, intelligence, advocacy and diligence of local leaders, invites everyone in the community to attend its 9th Annual Heroes for Housing Fundraising Breakfast at 8 a.m. on Wednesday, September 14, 2022.
We’re back in-person at TwinStar Community Foundation Event Center, SPSCC Lacey, 4220 6th Ave SE, Lacey.
Please RSVP on the Homes First website or send questions by emailing Shannon at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Join with others in helping our neighbors in this extraordinary way. Together, we celebrate, learn and encourage others. Together, we are changing lives, one family at a time. This breakfast event is free to attend thanks to the generosity of our local sponsors, and you will be invited to make a donation during the program.
Event sponsors include Presenting Sponsor The Chehalis Tribe and Champion Sponsors OlyFed, WSECU and FORMA Construction.
Expect to be changed by what you hear and learn during the event. As Pennie, Homes First tenant has said, “Homes First gives that grace of not seeing where they are at or what they have done, but seeing the people and where they can be.”
Real-life stories like that are shared during Homes First events, and they inspire community members to donate money, time or resources to house more of our neighbors in Thurston County. You also improve the chances for families to have lasting financial stability and the opportunity to contribute to the success of the community we all love.
At a time when the landscape and the news are filled with increasingly dark news about the crushing cost of housing and the mammoth wave of homelessness both locally and globally, Homes First offers their tenants homes and the hope, dignity and respect that Thurston County can be proud of.
