Connecting with others

Adrienne & Tim from Mosaic Commons, by Diana CarrollThere are a lot of ways to get involved with the cohousing movement, and to connect with others. In the electronic world, you can sign up for emails from Coho/US, communities, and professionals or join cohousing-L, an email discussion list on all aspects of cohousing. You can find us on on Facebook, Twitter, and Google+.

Check our calendar or Meetup for events near you. You can also use our Directory to find a community near you and get in touch, or check our Classified Ads for groups looking for members, or cohousing homes for sale.

Visit our list of Cohousing Professionals to find architects, developers, consultants, marketers, trainers, and others who can address the special needs of cohousing communities and forming groups.

Coho/US is always looking for passionate and talented folks to help us grow the cohousing movement, from spreading the word, writing for our blog, or conference planning. Visit our Volunteer Opportunities.

Many professionals are interested in providing services to forming groups and existing communities. Coho/US does not screen Other Professional listings. Professionals demonstrating cohousing...
