What is cohousing?

Cohousing communities are intentional, collaborative neighborhoods that combine extensive common facilities with private homes to create strong and successful housing developments. Most of these communities are organized as townhouse or condominium developments with a homeowners association; a few are organized as cooperatives. Cohousing is not a financial or legal model, but rather a descriptive term that shows the intent of these developments to cultivate a strong sense of community through extensive common facilities and active collaboration of the residents.

About the 500 Communities Program

CoHousing Solutions has developed a training program for passionate entrepreneurs who want to devote themselves to the goal of building the next 500 communities while working collaboratively, supporting each other and making a living.

This program will build the infrastructure to create the next 500 communities. We need you, because we want to see these collaborative communities built sooner rather than later. Scaling cohousing across the country will take a network of professionals catalyzing new development. This program will help you reach personal career goals while contributing to the larger picture of a more sustainable future.
