Drawing Together to Give Back

At the Greater Iowa City Area Home Builders Association Home Show, our 8-foot coloring book featured inspirations from the local community—focused on giving back to local charities.

Helping Houses into Homes

Urban Acres is proud to sponsor Houses into Homes, an organization that helps people furnish their homes with gently used furniture.

Advancing Youth Development

Through our sponsorship of HAVLife Johnson County, we are able to impact the lives of youth through sports, music, and other activities.

Deep Roots in the Community We Call Home

Since Urban Acres began in 2015, giving back has been one of our organization’s core values and a guiding force for our team of more than 50. After all, helping clients buy and sell homes is only part of what we do. We live, work, and play in the greater Iowa City area. We serve on the PTO, coach sports, volunteer on nonprofit boards, and support efforts that impact all members of our community, from infants to seniors.

At Urban Acres, community matters. It’s why we partner with local organizations who share our passion for giving back. Here are just a few of our initiatives.

Since its inception, HAVlife has awarded more than $207,000 to youth ages 10-15 to pursue their passion for music, art, and athletics without barriers. Our partnership includes public education and sponsorship of HAVlife’s annual fundraiser.

Urban Acres regularly contributes volunteer hours and financial gifts to help Houses into Homes keep furniture, beds, and other household items out of local landfills.

During the annual Greater Iowa City Area Home Builders Association Home Show, Urban Acres sponsors a booth with a charitable theme to support various charities and organizations in our community.

Friends of the Animal Center Foundation

Our agents have a soft spot for the furry, four-legged members of our community. Urban Acres supports the Friends of the Animal Center Foundation mission to serve the needs of animals in our community.

Arts and Culture

To support the arts in our community, we regularly sponsor ticket giveaways to local theaters, including the Englert Theatre, Hancher Auditorium, Brucemore, and Old Creamery Theatre, as well as concert venues, and other cultural events.

Surprise and Delight

Through quarterly giveaways, Urban Acres recognizes the individuals in our community, including teachers and veterans who go above and beyond to make the Corridor a great place to call home.
