MLF Community First! Village

We are so excited to share with you that the first residents of Community First! have begun to move into the micro-houses.  As we prepare to welcome home new neighbors into Community First!, there are items we need your help to provide so that when someone moves in, he or she is set up with all the essentials they need to turn a house into a home. Below are the items for which you can sign up to bring prior to a move-in. 

Drop off items across from the café in the large drop off box marked Community First.

5th-wheel trailer needed

Riverbend is looking to purchase a 5-wheel trailer, 36’+, with 2 AC units, and 50 amp to the Community First Village for the homeless. This will enable a Riverbend couple to move into this community as on-site missionaries and help facilitate our ministry there with the Community First residents.  We anticipate a financial need of $16,000 to purchase a good condition used trailer. To date we are halfway to our goal of raising this money
