Our engineering class went on the Community First tour. Where I learned many things. The main thing that I learned and will forever remember is that homelessness is mainly caused by broken families. Another thing I learned from one of the volunteers (Steven Hebbard) is that rabbits feces fertilize soil. Lastly I got to listen and learn about Mobile Loaves and Fishes main goals which are to create a community that cares about who we are as a person, and create a 27 acre community basically a village for the homeless where there is a church, a garden and a medical center. Where they would restore trailers and build new houses. Then put them together in the 27 acres and create a community with chronically homeless only.
We got to visit some of the homes and the garden that they had on site, the picture with the definition of home caught my attention very much I feel like it is a great explanation of what a home is all about. Lastly don’t forget to visit their website http://mlf.org/community-first/
