Giving Back

We proudly support the following non-profits:

Bend Paddle Trail Alliance  BPTA shall promote and establish a navigable paddle trail within Deschutes County that will enhance river and lake recreation and appreciation for a wide variety of recreational water enthusiasts while promoting water safety, education, and stewardship.

First Story  Since forming in 1998, First Story’s mission has largely remained the same: help people in need through funding and housing. We wanted to change lives by providing critical resources and by removing the obstacles to homeownership. Our vision was laid by our founder, Hayden Homes, who believed every child should have the opportunity to grow up and thrive in a decent home, every parent should have the dignity of providing her kids with a safe place to grow, and every family should have the chance to build wealth.

Habitat for Humanity  Bend Area Habitat for Humanity is dedicated to providing affordable homeownership opportunities for families and individuals in Bend. Over the past 29 years, Bend Area Habitat has built 123 homes and repaired 70 more, providing more than 600 children and adults with safe, secure and healthy homes.

KOR Community Land Trust  Kôr provides environmentally sustainable and permanently affordable homeownership opportunities for those who contribute to the fabric of the Bend area economy and community.
