Mobile Loaves & Fishes, a social justice ministry, has been planning their new homeless community in on 27 acres in East Austin.

The village is still being built right now, but even just the development feels like a sunny mini paradise, hiding right off the road on the east side of Austin, Texas.

The new community will feature homes — RVs, tiny cabins, and teepees — for 250 formerly homeless for rent as low as $90.
