Community First! Village site plan

“We provide food and clothing and promote dignity to our homeless brothers and sisters in need.
Community First! Village, a program of Mobile Loaves & Fishes, is a 27 acre master-planned community that will provide affordable, sustainable housing and a supportive community for the disabled, chronically homeless in Central Texas. The Community First! Village will radically transform and renew our community as the men and women living on the streets are lifted up into community and home.

Currently, we are in a very exciting Capital Campaign and anticipate breaking ground in 2014.”

  1. I watched the video on their site. The brown squares and circles are tents and teepees. The group has been successful in housing some of the homeless in RV’s and tents throughout the city so they do have some experience doing it. Whether it can work on a larger scale with people living close to each other is yet to be seen.

    • That’s a new angle — set people up in mobile homes and later move them to a permanent setting. Obviously you watched the video more closely than I did!

      My idea was to create a recycled house business like Tiny Texas Houses. http://tinytexashouses.com/
      This would create jobs and sustainable houses.

  2. This is something that many people want to do but few are successful. There are so many problems that will have to be figured out. I commend them for trying.

    Are those brown squares on the lower half of the map tents?

  3. While I am leery of the religious motives of people who set up homeless communities such as this, I applaud their efforts. We need many more places where those in need can find safe shelter from the elements and from predators (both two legged and four legged).

    • Yeah, it’s not perfect. There are far too many manufactured trailer houses in my opinion. But at least people are off the streets, their basic needs are met and maybe gradually they can get back on their feet.
