Community First! Village: Talk & Tour (+ volunteer opportunity!)

Hosted at Community First! Village

About this FieldTrip

In November, Alan Graham moved our creative community with his engaging and inspiring talk during the CreativeMornings Global Summit. Alan, visionary and founder of Mobile Loaves & Fishes and Community First described to us how his mustard seed of an idea - to house one homeless person in a gently used RV - kept on growing. If you didn’t make it out to that talk, this FieldTrip will be an intimate way for you to experience the community and Alan’s inspiring story firsthand.

Take a tour of the Community First! Village, a 27-acre master planned community that provides affordable, permanent housing and a supportive community for the disabled and chronically homeless in Central Texas. This community boasts 140 micro homes, designed by some of the most gifted architects in the world and an RV park of 100 RVs. A development of Mobile Loaves & Fishes, this transformative residential program exists to love and serve our neighbors who have been living on the streets, while also empowering the surrounding community into a lifestyle of service with the homeless. Come and experience this magical, supportive community – serving ‘Goodness’ to those that need it most!

For those who are interested - and don’t have to rush off to work - there will be an opportunity to volunteer with the Community First! team helping with Property Beautification after the tour, from 9:30 am - 12 pm.

In order to volunteer, you’ll need to sign up online, here, and complete the Community First! volunteer agreement, a requirement before volunteering with them.
