Austin's Village of Tiny Houses for the Homeless Is Open, and It's Beautiful

15 lovely Instagram photos of the innovative Community First! project

Pretty much from the time its photos started popping up online and in the press, we've been watching the development of Community First! Village. It was a story that unfolded particularly well in the compelling imagery that came out of it.

The ambitious project of charity group Mobile Loaves & Fishes, Community First! was conceived of 12 years ago as an innovative village of mobile homes, tiny houses, gardens, and community space for people who are homeless or close to it. A master-planned community of 27 acres, it also features an outdoor movie theater where its residents can work, along with other spaces, job training, and employment opportunities.

On Saturday, according to KVUE-TV's website and other media sources, the village of micro-homes has finally opened, to much celebration. Here are some photos from Instagram that tell some of the story.
