Penney Lane

So far, my blogs have featured some of the micro-enterprises at Community First! Village. They are intended to give a very brief, slice-of-life inside look.

With that said, this weeks blog is a little different.

The “meat and potatoes” of the documentary will focus more on the heartbreaks that cause homelessness and the inspiring stories of healing that takes place once our homeless brothers and sisters are welcomed into this community.

I'm excited to share with you a brief story about CFV resident and artist Penney Hunt, whom I have known since she arrived in Austin in 2004. Penney is in her 50’s and had been living on the streets since she was 12 years old. She ended up in Austin when the circus she was working for disbanded, leaving her with no money or home.

I’ll let the video tell the rest.

Like Penney, the residents at Community First Village, along with the village itself, have a story to tell that is worth spreading. You can help.
