Treasure House is the vision of Kurt and Brenda Warner, founders of the First Things First Foundation, who believe that all people, regardless of ability, have a purpose and call for their life, and are able to participate in meaningful and challenging activities, establish personal relationships, and contribute to society when provided with appropriate supports and opportunities.
The Warners have been inspired and amazed by all that their son Zachary has accomplished in his life, despite the diagnoses and labels given to him. It is their love for Zack that gives them the passion to create an environment that will not only support those with intellectual and developmental disabilities but also will allow them to thrive as they share their gifts with others.
Treasure House is a Christian-based supportive living community for young adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD), with the first location planned for the Greater Phoenix Metropolitan area. A strong emphasis on independence, respect, and community integration will provide an optimal environment for residents to live, work, worship, and enjoy recreational activities while being part of a larger family.
