Yesterday, the Austin Board of REALTORS® made history. In our largest donation ever, ABoR announced a $1 million, 10-year partnership between the ABoR Foundation and Community First! Village, an innovative, 51-acre master-planned community by Mobile Loaves & Fishes that provides permanent, supportive housing for men and women coming out of chronic homelessness.
Homelessness is experienced by far too many in our community today. Through a profound, catastrophic loss of family, our homeless neighbors have not only lost a place to call home, but also the hope and dignity inherently deserved by every human being.
Through this partnership, ABoR took a stand on our deeply held belief in the value of “community.” Just as REALTORS® bring families home every day, the ABoR Foundation is taking action to restore home and community to our neighbors who need it most. We intend to accomplish this objective through hands-on volunteer and service opportunities at Community First! Village, as well as through financial support.
I am incredibly proud of this partnership and cannot wait to see what we will accomplish with Community First! Village over the next decade. Most importantly, I hope you will choose to be a part of it.
If you have never been involved with the ABoR Foundation, now is the time. Join our fight against homelessness with Community First! Village by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, and we’ll be in touch with ways you can volunteer.
