The Legacy One team served at Mobile Loaves & Fishes Community First! Village where the vision is to empower communities into a lifestyle of service with the homeless. Mobile Loaves & Fishes (MLF) was founded in 1998 and serves its homeless neighbors through three core programs: Truck Ministry, Community First! Village and Community Works. Community First! Village is a 51-acre master planned community that provides affordable, permanent housing and a supportive community for men and women coming out of chronic homelessness. 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 homelessness.
The Legacy One team spent a day in the community with one of the welcoming, long-time residents who shared his story from homelessness to finding the community to now being a leader among his neighbors. Together, the team spent the day engaging with residents, tending the grounds, pulling weeds and cleaning up the place these individuals call home. The village was a unique place filled with feelings of unity, understanding, acceptance and support. The experience provided the Legacy One team with a reminder of the progress that is possible when we work together to serve other people.
