The Symposium for Goodness’ Sake is tailored for individuals and organizations interested in learning the essentials behind the inner workings of Community First! Village and how they can get started on a similar project with purpose. From the individual who longs to help the panhandler on the corner, to the team who plan to launch a Community First! movement in their own cities, each Symposium attendee will be empowered by this paradigm-breaking, faith-based approach to caring for the chronically homeless with compassion and dignity. The Symposium for Goodness’ Sake is far more than a simple overview of Community First! Village. Attendees participate in an interactive immersive learning experience.  The essential components that constitutes the operations at the Community First! Village will be presented.  Topics covered include property management, resident care, our micro-enterprises plus so much more!  Additionally, attendees will be exposed to the Community First! philosophies, values and approach which make Mobile Loaves & Fishes’ work unique and distinctively effective.  Through interactive talks, workshops, tours and other consultative guidance, the Mobile Loaves & Fishes team will be sharing more than two decades’ worth of experience. For those interested in bringing the Community First! model back to their own cities, the Symposium for Goodness’s Sake is the indispensable first step on your journey.  It also provides the foundation needed to participate in the Community First! replication pathway created to support leaders and organizations committed to the complex, faith-building and fulfilling endeavor of transforming your community.  We invite you to jump in!
