Founder's Circle

The Founder's Circle neighborhood was completed in late fall 2011.

Located at S 11th and S Shirley St in central Tacoma, Founder's Circle was completed in the fall of 2011.

Founder's Circle is a neighborhood of six houses of varying sizes and styles in a cul de sac on Shirley Street, just south of 11th St S. The neighborhood was called Founder's Circle in honor of TPC Habitat for Humanity’s 25th anniversary in 2010.

In 2008, prior to Habitat for Humanity’s purchase of the vacant land, the Founder's Circle property was a homeless encampment. TPC Habitat for Humanity staff and volunteers put in a ridge and a line of new evergreens to act as a sound barrier between the neighborhood and Highway 16, and to add beauty to this new development.
