To learn more & get involved

Step 1: Educate yourself about cohousing! Read, for example, Creating Cohousing (Durrett and McCamant) and in particular The Senior Cohousing Handbook (Durrett), both available at many libraries. The latter is the only book in English on this subject, and we consider it a must-read.

Also search videos about cohousing on YouTube. And check out the Cohousing Association of America at

Step 2: Get on our mailing list (see Contact Us).

Step 3: Take our short SURVEY OF INTEREST by clicking here survey of interest.      

Step 4: Come to one of our monthly Information Sessions (see Calendar). We average about 30 attendees per event. The program consists of a slideshow about senior cohousing and our project, followed by Q&A and refreshments. The second half features facilitated small-group conversations followed by a whole-group discussion. This is a unique opportunity not only to explore the idea of cohousing, but to connect in a meaningful way with people like yourself, your peers, around the burning question of where we will live as we age.
