This Austin Village Is Helping Homeless Citizens

Austin, Texas is home to incredible sites like Hamilton Pool, mouth-watering eats like Smitty’s Barbecue, and a woman who’s called the Boot Whisperer. No doubt it’s an awesome place, but the way the community is striving to give its homeless citizens a better life is what truly makes it a beautiful city.

Community First! Village is a development stretching over 27 acres. It provides affordable, permanent housing for people in Central Texas who are disabled or chronically homeless. Not only does it provide homes, but it also helps these people find jobs and purpose.

In 2017, men and women earned $400,000 through the micro-enterprise programs at the Village. So the mission isn’t just to give them places to live, but to also help integrate them back into society. See what the Village’s residents are saying …
