Homelessness is a problem in every city in the country, and many times when we see tiny homes we think, “We need more of these for the homeless!” Community First! Village in Austin, Texas took that idea and brought it to life, with 51 acres of property with more than 500 homes for the chronically homeless.
But they’ve gone beyond just building houses — they’ve built a community. Residents find family and friends at the village, as well as work on the premises. There’s an art house, automotive shop, forge, organic garden and so much more designed to give the neighbors at the community purpose. The FAQ page answers tons of questions about the village here.
One of the ways they get revenue for the park is through some tiny house rentals where anyone can stay during a visit to Austin! Check that out here.

“Housing will never solve homeless, but community will.”
Walking through the village, you see all kinds of tiny homes.
There are community restrooms, laundry facilities and outdoor kitchens.
Residents pay a low monthly rent.
This is designed as a permanent housing solution.
They also have gently-used RVs on site.
What an awesome solution to homelessness!
We need more of these communities!
