As with all of the micro-enterprises, the Community Inn is able to contract with residents of the Village to help with maintenance, housekeeping, and cooking, allowing for another way that they can make a dignified income. As Barrett, the innkeeper, says, “It’s a beautiful thing.”
I’m finally getting around to posting my first blog about Community First! Village. I plan to update it on a weekly basis and occasionally include some “slice of life”
vignettes like this one.
Since we began shooting in April and have hours and hours of amazing stories, we thought it would be fun to feature some of the micro-enterprises that are available to the residents at the Village.
As you will learn, one of the transformational components of living at Community First! is the opportunity for the previously homeless residents to earn a dignified income and to be mentored by the staff that works there. This brief video demonstrates an example of that. By the way, the products featured are also available as rewards when you give to our Kickstarter campaign.
