Community First! Village has been developed with an approach similar to the Housing First model, which believes an individual must first be adequately housed before important lifesaving services such as drug and alcohol rehabilitation would be effective. To go through rehab or receive other vital services only to be released back onto the streets is counterproductive. Mobile Loaves & Fishes has taken this approach a step further by emphasizing community and relationships in all that we do.

At Community First! Village, we are providing more than just adequate housing. We are developing a community with revolutionary services and attention to an individual’s relational needs at a fraction of the cost of traditional housing initiatives. The emphasis at Community First! Village is on dignity, love, respect, abundance and acceptance. It is based on Scripture’s meaning of shalom, which describes a human at peace in all relationships—with God, oneself, other people and the natural world.

Please remember that the possession and distribution of controlled substances is against the law. We expect everyone living in Community First! Village to abide by the law.
