What is Cohousing

What is Cohousing


What’s next? How do you want to live your life? Are you looking to downsize? Are you interested in living in a closer community that has a smaller footprint and is sustainable? Perhaps we were at one time living in homes that housed our families. They may have been in neighborhoods where the living space was cut off from other neighboring homes. Many of us are now looking for solutions that would offer privacy yet live closer to our neighbors and friends. We are looking for a new way to live.

Cohousing is a contemporary approach to a very basic need of being closer to our friends & neighbors yet still maintaining our privacy. There are over 130 Cohousing communities in the US.

Cohousing Communities offer:

  • Small enough communities that we know everyone.

  • Creating neighborhoods with a sense of place

  • Security and belonging

  • Privacy and community

  • Safe & supportive environment

  • A practical & spontaneous lifestyle

  • Inter-generational & 55+ Active Adult neighborhoods

  • Environmentally sensitive design

  • Socially Vibrant neighborhoods

Cohousing Communities Help Prevent Social Isolationism
