The Cabin: A Center for Readers & Writers

By living in a community with a vibrant culture, we are able to be the kind of place that lifts up those around us. Having a strong, vibrant arts community makes Boise a better place for everyone to live, work and give.

The Pettitt Group real estate team supports art in all forms. We believe that art creates community, which is why each month we choose a local non-profit organization to support.

We are excited to announce our support for The Cabin Idaho in March 2018. We will give $100 per transaction to The Cabin this month, or a minimum of $1,000 (whichever is greater).



The Cabin is a Boise, Idaho literary arts organization. The Cabin forges community through the voices of all readers, writers and learners. The Cabin’s workshops, readings, lectures, camps and other educational programs provoke creativity and experimentation, foster literary excellence, and inspire a love of reading and writing.

The Cabin believes that connecting with writers and their writing will make us all more empathetic by giving us access to feelings and experiences we couldn’t possibly know if we didn’t read or write. This means that spreading the joy and craft of reading and writing doesn’t just create more readers and writers, but more thoughtful, understanding people.
