An Inspired Community Village For The Chronically Homeless

A new 27-acre village in Austin, Texas will provide extremely low-income housing. The village will welcome home 200 previously homeless Austin residents.

The cottages are small, but cozy. The people who move in will work — some will be provided mobile food carts and there will be a wood shop on site for builders.

Residents will pay rent, albeit a small amount, and the community will be gated. Neighbors are supportive of the project, which is often an obstacle in building low-income housing.

There will be an outdoor movie theater on site, to bring the community and other Austin residents together. The community also includes a 3-acre garden and a medical center.
