Brokers and staff of the Cushman & Wakefield Austin office were thrilled to spend the
morning of December 15th in service at the innovative Community First! Village.
This one-of-a-kind development is a 27-acre master planned community that provides affordable, permanent housing and a supportive community for the disabled, chronically-homeless in Central Texas. A project of Mobile Loaves & Fishes, this transformative residential program exists to love and serve those who have been living on the streets, while also empowering the surrounding community into a lifestyle of service with the homeless.
The Village is a place that enables the formerly-homeless residents to heal. It’s a place where they can rediscover hope, renew their purpose and restore their dignity. Most importantly, it’s a place they can call home.
Some of the enthusiastic C&W crew helped harvest and peel loofah squash (yes, they crow on vines!) and hibiscus buds. The end results will be sold in the village store or given to residents to enjoy. Others helped plant flowers, build a trellis and clean the property.
