How to Make Friends as an Adult

Making friends as an adult can be difficult, but when you live in a HomeFirstTM Certified Community, it’s a whole lot easier. Our communities are conducive to forming long-lasting friendships. And what could be better than having your friends right next door?

Friends are vitally important. They help you enjoy the good times and get through the tough ones. Additionally, they can improve your mood, reduce your stress, and provide a support system when you need it. Here are some easy ways to make friends in your Michigan manufactured home community:

Stay Active

You’re not going to meet anyone sitting on your sofa! Fortunately all HomeFirstTM Certified Communities have a wide selection of recreational facilities. From basketball courts and indoor gyms, to inline hockey rinks and playgrounds, we have something for everyone! It’s a great way to meet people with common interests while staying in shape, too.

Community Events

We take pride in organizing a rich variety of events designed to bring neighbors together. From bingo and kids games, to community dinners and ice cream socials, there’s always something going on! Unless otherwise noted, our events are completely free. So stop by and let us show you a good time.


Volunteering is a great way to meet like-minded people. You’ll find individuals who are warm-hearted, generous and genuinely kind. Volunteering also gives you ample opportunities to practice and develop your social skills.

Walk a dog.

Walking a dog is fun for your animal and a great way to meet other people. Dog owners like to chat with each other while their pets play. If you don’t have a dog, volunteer at your local shelter or rescue group to walk their dogs.

Just Smile

No matter your community, you’ll find sociable neighbors on every block. Our residents are famously friendly, and how can you blame them considering their incredible living situation? Next time you see a resident, walk up and say hello. We’re confident you’ll receive a smile in return!
