Mobile Loaves and Fishes, a faith-based non-profit organization in the city of Austin focusing on ending homelessness, has officially broken ground on the second small-home village, which will be designed to serve residents of Austin who are currently homeless. The little village is called the Community First! Village.The first phase of the 51-acre master planned community project initially broke ground back in 2014 and it brought entrepreneurs, volunteers, staff, city leaders, and designers together in order to help with establishing a more permanent housing model in order to help eliminate homelessness.
Nowadays, the property is a 24-acre community that contains the following:
*20 canvas-sided cottages
*Food preparation/dining areas
*Outdoor movie theater
*Direct bus line
Those looking to either join the housing community or utilize their services will not have to meet any form of religious-based requirements.
The recent second groundbreaking ceremony also marked the launch of the “Building Hope” capital campaign, which is designed to provide opportunities to provide micro-homes and other types of sponsorship for the next expansion of the project, which is expected to be completed sometime within the next three to four years.
