Volunteering at this community has been an amazing experience and has helped me gain insight on how Austin is addressing people experiencing homelessness, food insecurity, and what current nonprofits are doing and still need to do in order to tackle these complex problems. This experience has been eye-opening and perspective-shifting,
Community First is a great place to volunteer and learn about a plethora of issues connected to people experiencing homelessness, such as food insecurity, mental health, and resource-finding. Because it is a unique solution to the homeless epidemic and cities nationwide are trying to mirror its strategy, it is the perfect place to learn about solutions to all the aforementioned topics. It is truly an eye-opening experience.
