HomeAid Austin partnered with seven homebuilders to construct eight permanent micro-homes at Community First! Village in East Austin.
Mobile Loaves & Fishes (MLF), the non-profit organization who developed Community First! Village, cites the catastrophic loss of family as the number one cause of homelessness, but eight individuals will now be surrounded by a loving family of neighbors. Community First! provides residents with supportive services, opportunities to earn a dignified income and various options for affordable housing.
HomeAid Executive Director, Melissa Nicewarner Daly, said, “We believe everyone deserves a place to call home. These eight tiny homes represent the compassion of the homebuilding industry and boast top-of-the-line craftsmanship that you would expect from a new home builder. Through donations of labor and materials, our builder captains and trade partners enabled HomeAid to save MLF $240,000. This is money MLF can instead invest in their operations and program.”
Builder Captains for the Community First! Village group project include CCG Development, Cumby Development, David Weekley Homes, Lennar, Scott Felder Homes, Taylor Morrison and Tri Pointe Homes.
