What Kind of People Live in Cohousing Communities?


You might be interested in cohousing if:

  • you thought about the idea of creating community long before you heard the term cohousing.
  • you tend to seek to improve your quality of life, are interested in the larger community around you, and tend to think globally and act locally.
  • to the best of your ability, you take responsibility for yourself, for the world you experience, and for the world your children will inherit.
  • you have a more conscious approach toward the natural environment, reduced home size, sharing of resources and community recycling.

People who choose to be a part of a cohousing community come from a variety of backgrounds, income levels, family types and beliefs. What they do have in common is a desire to have a say in how their neighborhood will be and a belief that having more connection with their neighbors will be good for them.
