Lucy Stone CooperativeGabehttps://sites.google.com/a/lucystonecoop.org/lsc/28 Moreland St., Roxbury, MA 0211920-36Hilary Lake, 248.410.0798, hilaryjlake@gmail.comYesBuilding connections of individuals that have interest in cooperative living builds capacity for whatever you may want to do be it starting a housing cooperative, social justice campaign, or any expansive movement. About really creating possibilities. Ability to really do what I want to do, without connection it is hard but together were on a roll! Build relationships/connection with others you can do anything. A spiritual cooperative house that is apart of UU Cooperative Communities (UUCC) with the intention to do social justice, spiritual practice, and sustainability work. Provides opportunity to live to those values. A lot of integrity. Yesnot yetneeds to consult rest of groupneeds to consult rest of group, probably yes

The Fort Co-op (Beaufort) Gabehttp://thefort.bostoncoop.net/thefortcoop@gmail.com31 Beaufort Rd, Jamaica Plain, MA11Julia Golomb, 603-793-6639, julia.golomb@gmail.comYes “Awesome,” I personally do not have a lot of experience with connecting with other coops. Not sure what being part of branches would do for me as a coop member. Other people here are involved with other coops but not us.Moving somewhere and connecting with so many people as a new comer to the area, so helpful with getting family and community so quickly. An instant ‘support system.’ No feeling alone. Value combination of privacy and shared space, amazed at the amount of time that alone space can be found with so many people around. Everyone have their own schedules but we still connect a lot. (Everyone here is so busy with their lives but still somehow find the time to connect with fellow coop members. condensed version) Sharing of tasks is amazing, many small tasks make life work. To share food we each devote 3 hours a week to cooking and then benefit from having a wonderful home cooked meal every night of the week.A cooperative with eleven people. We buy vegan food together and prepare it. It is a well organized and highly functioning coop but still feels relaxed too. Really great people. Good size=perfect! I feel that there isn't enough diversity of heritage, meaning skin color and heritage, and we could work on that. Feels very white, doesn't feel like it is a broader representation of the greater Jamaica Plain area. “Our house feels like family.” It serves as a community space for local organizations such as the Food Project, Boston Skillshare, musicians, etc.Yesnot yetYesYes

The Spirit of '76Gabehttp://home.earthlink.net/~spiritof_76/index.htmlform on website76 Boston Ave., Medford, MA 02155624-63Gabe Baldwin, 508-579-9891YesIncreasing the opportunity for people to live in community is a movement that I believe in strongly. A place to share the stories of life. Living and growing with others. To share and live in community. A calm and beautiful retreat. We are a cooperative housing community based on shared values of equality of persons, environmental sustainability, human rights, peace, and justice. We manage our affairs through consensus and shared responsibilities as we strive to create an alternative to the exploitive housing market and wasteful consumerism. Yesnot yetYesYes

Affordable public housing. Think about group income, e.g. bed and breakfastA place where we can share resources as well as burdens. A place we can live together in community, a bond that wouldn't happen in other college living situations by sharing food and supporting local agriculture.A coop is a place where people who wound't necessarily have everything in common come together to create community and provide and care for each other with some responsibility to society in general.Yesnot yetYesYes
