Join us to serve at Community First! Village. Community First! Village is a 27-acre master planned community that provides affordable, permanent housing and a supportive community for the disabled, chronically homeless in Central Texas, including veterans. A development of Mobile Loaves & Fishes, this transformative residential program exists to love and serve our neighbors who have been living on the streets, while also empowering the surrounding community into a lifestyle of service with the homeless.
Please meet at the front office of Unity Hall to check in and get a name tag! This serve event may entail laying pathways, harvesting our gardens, tending the chicken coop, dry landscaping yards of our micro-homes, etc.
We ask that everyone come wearing the proper clothing to ensure a safe day at work and require that each volunteer wear long pants, a short sleeve shirt, close toed shoes (boots HIGHLY recommended) and always recommend a hat, bug spray and/or sunscreen for the outdoors.
All volunteers under 18 MUST be accompanied by a parent/guardian while serving at the village.
All volunteers are required to register with both Mobile Loaves and Fishes and Austin 1st Service Platoon.

Certain host organizations, such as schools, may prohibit volunteers with certain types of criminal convictions from participating in a service project. Accordingly, The Mission Continues is requesting your consent to conduct a criminal background check in the event that your Platoon is engaging in a service project with a host organization that requires a criminal background check. By checking the box below, you authorize The Mission Continues to conduct a criminal background check.
If such a background check is required, it will be completed and used in accordance with applicable law. The Mission Continues does not automatically disqualify persons from Platoons based on criminal convictions. We want as many people as possible to have the opportunity to move forward in their lives through service, at the same time that we seek to protect the communities we serve together.
