Remarkable Tiny Home Village for Formerly Homeless in Austin
In this week's video, we share a look inside Community First Village in Austin, Texas.
It's a beautiful 51-acre master-planned tiny home village providing affordable housing in a supportive community for the disabled and previously chronically homeless.
Community First is currently home to 200 individuals in tiny houses and RVs. Also, a missional community lives and works on-site.
As a way to invite the outside community in, for support and to build relationships with their residents, they offer many engaging programs. For example, this includes volunteer opportunities, special events, and bed and breakfast featuring classic trailers & tiny houses on wheels.
"Mobile Loaves & Fishes desires to empower the community around us into a lifestyle of service with the homeless. We achieve this vision through Community First! Village by taking a relational approach for connecting with our homeless brothers and sisters, instead of a transactional approach."
