When stranded in the wilderness, the four survival priorities are:
1) Shelter
2) Water
3) Fire
4) Food
We believe that everyday life is not much different; yet far too many people do not have access to even the most basic, decent, affordable housing. We believe the severe lack of adequate affordable housing has widespread negative impacts on health, education outcomes, and job opportunities; and we believe it's the responsibility of those of us more fortunate to change things. We plan to redefine nonprofit housing and create a new paradigm for the First Priority.​​​​​​​
Our mission is to change lives by providing high quality, energy efficient, affordable homes to extremely low-income individuals and families. We seek to do this in a way that does not require ongoing donations or subsidies to realize continued affordable rents.
Our vision is to develop and build self-sustaining, life-changing neighborhoods where extremely low-income renters can not only find high quality, energy efficient, affordable homes but also experience a "pride of ownership" like a homeowner.
Fundamental to our organization are these Core Values that shape, direct, and inspire us daily.
We are an organization comprised of people who believe it is our responsibility to create opportunities for lives to be changed, to help those less fortunate build a better future, and to foster trust and integrity in all we do.​​​​​​​
Who we are:
We believe love changes lives.
We act when we see a need.
We strive to be honorable of all people.
What we do:
We provide for the high-quality affordable housing needs of our clients.
We build communities that lay the groundwork for caring relationships to help ease the daily stress, struggles, and challenges of life.
We strive to be the anti-slumlord.
How we do it:
We treat all people as we would want to be treated.
We strive to operate with integrity and trust in all we do.
We strive to honor God and be respectful of each other, our clients, and our donors.
We believe that love is just a word until someone gives it meaning.
