AUSTIN, TX — Realty Austin deepened their commitment to Community First! Village on Giving Tuesday by sponsoring a Park Home RV at the village. As part of its commitment to finding solutions for the affordable housing crisis, Realty Austin agents and staff donated $35,000 to sponsor the home for a formerly homeless neighbor. Mobile Loaves and Fishes developed the game-changing Community First! Village that transforms the lives of formerly homeless neighbors. At the village, neighbors thrive where they are surrounded by support and empowered to build a better life through a community.
Yvette Boatwright, Realty Austin Co-owner, “Alan Graham is pioneering ways to solve homelessness. It has been a dream of our team to support his efforts at Community First! Village where he is making a big difference. Our agents give back year-round in order to support these impactful community initiatives to support safe and affordable housing in the community we love.”
What is Community First! Village
Community First! Village is a 27-acre master-planned community in East Austin, developed by Mobile Loaves & Fishes founder and CEO, Alan Graham. The village is made up of RV and 400 square foot homes to over 200 formerly homeless residents. Residents along with volunteers put their special skills to use from gardening to metalwork, in order to give back to the growing community. An expansion is planned for the village into the 24 neighboring acreages that would allow houses for an additional 350 residents.
We’re For Here
Realty Austin Agents give back year-round, which stems directly from their mission to uplift Austin-area neighbors in need. While the We’re For Here movement focuses on safe, affordable housing, the brokerages call for community building, neighborliness, and love, manifest in many initiatives that allow others to give back in Austin.
