As we get closer to the holidays, we thought we’d get a jump-start on giving thanks and giving back by sharing our story about Community First! Village.
Before Thanksgiving 2019, Ash Creek Homes toured Community First! Village in Austin. It is a 51-acre master planned community that provides affordable, permanent housing and a supportive community for men and women coming out of chronic homelessness. A development of Mobile Loaves & Fishes, this transformative residential program exists to love and serve our neighbors. Despite the rain delays, we built and donated two tiny homes to the project.
This wasn’t out first time working with Community First! Village. Ash Creek Homes stepped in years ago when the project launched and donated and built two homes in one of the earlier phases. The homes turned out great and we were so impressed with the important, life-changing work happening there, we decided to contribute again. We worked closely with our partners and friends — including Ash Creek Homes team members — the sense of “community” we felt as we built the homes perfectly illustrated the whole reason Community First! Village makes sense.
