For the Inn Crowd

In my opinion, one of the more unique micro-enterprises at Community First! Village is the Community Inn.

In addition to some micro homes, the Community Inn has 4 large teepees and some very distinctive “vintage” campers available for booking on a nightly basis.

"Shasta" the vintage Airstream trailer has AC, a shower, and a fully-equipped kitchenette.

They are listed on Airbnb and HomeAway, and they have quite a few bookings by people who have no idea where they are located, but simply want to stay there for the unique accommodations.

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.”

Healing by Hand

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.
