Public Presentation Addresses Senior LGBT Housing Crisis
Durham, NC— Village Hearth Cohousing invites anyone interested in solving the senior LGBT housing crisis to a free public presentation on Friday, August 25th at 4:00 p.m. at Southwest Regional Library in Durham, NC. The presentation will feature architect and cohousing expert, Charles Durrett (McCamant & Durrett Architects) who, along with Kathryn McCamant (CoHousing Solutions) brought cohousing to the U.S. in the 1980s. To date, McCamant & Durrett Architects (MDA) has designed over 50 cohousing communities and over a dozen senior cohousing communities, including Village Hearth Cohousing.
Cohousing communities, ecovillages, co-ops, and other Intentional communities of all kinds are a response to problems in society. They are a recognition that some of the essentials that make community what it us, mutual support, love and caring, sharing lives and livelihood in a meaningful and satisfying way, are lacking in the world. Not all intentional communities share the same political or social views. Some mirror the trend towards isolationism and protectionism we see politics today.
