The idea behind Community First! Village simply began with one person in one RV. In 2004, Mobile Loaves & Fishes purchased our first gently used RV with a goal of lifting one person off the streets of Austin and enabling them to live in that RV. This was the advent of our Community First! program, and in the years that followed we lifted up more than 100 individuals from the streets and moved them into RV homes in different RV communities in the Austin area. It was during this time that we also began to brainstorm the idea of developing our own “RV park on steroids” to provide affordable, permanent housing as well as a supportive community for our homeless neighbors who were living on the streets. We began moving our first residents into Community First! Village in December 2015.
