The Homes for Good Foundation
In 2013 Homes for Good Housing Agency established its nonprofit branch known as The Homes for Good Foundation. The Foundation focuses on growing education opportunities for low-income youth in Lane County. The Homes for Good Foundation aims to provide stability and growth for students by offering two different programs:
- Scholarship Program
- Reading Program
Homes for Good Housing Agency provides housing and services to over 3,000 households in Lane County each year, which include over 600 youth between the ages of 17-24 who are preparing for the next phase of their life. Our $1,000 scholarship annually for two years helps youth off to the right start, with support for their goals of continuing education.
Our scholarship application is open to Homes for Good residents pursuing a college degree or vocational program. Our past recipients have went to study at UO, OSU, SOU, and Lane. The Homes for Good Foundation is the only organization in Lane County that provides scholarships specifically for low-income residents.

Our reading program is volunteer ran and ensures young students have an inclusive space to read one of their favorite stories with assistance from our volunteers. We have reading programs at three sites and meet bi-weekly at each one. We target ages K-8 grade with the purpose of having all resident kids meeting benchmark standards. The reading program has teamed up with the wellness committee to provide healthy, nutritious snacks for the students. We aim to create a stronger sense of community and growth with the reading program.
