An Accessible Model To Forming a Community
There are many names that this sort of arrangement goes by. We refer to these as Cooperative Homes (or Shared Homes interchangeably)
Some households build on top of this general model and incorporate strong communal living characteristics. This can include heavily centering around shared values, beliefs, and for some even incorporating income sharing between members.
Sidenote - cooperatives (or housing co-ops) are also a type of legal ownership structure. When we refer to cooperative homes we refer to the spirit of cooperative culture, not the ownership structure. But some households can have both cooperative culture and a co-op legal structure.
Cooperative Home Examples
There are plenty of cooperative households out there and many are started independently by people looking to create a community where they live. View these examples listed below (none of these were started with our help but are simply listed to showcase what's possible).
Don't hesitate to get in touch with us if you have any questions about starting a community. We'll be more than happy to provide an answer or direct you to the right place. Please keep in mind though that our team is made up of volunteers; hence, kindly bear with us if there's a delay in response times.
