Students from Arkansas colleges help out May 16, 2017, at a community in Austin, Texas, that offers permanent residence to homeless people. The visit to Community First! Village came during a mission trip organized by the Diocese of Little Rock, Arkansas. A national study found a move toward "immersion" instead of service, although the report noted the importance of service as an entry point into campus ministry and for student transformation.
