New Community Vision, LLC’s mission is facilitating home sharing with people who like each other. Our strategy, partnering with congregations and community groups, fosters neighborliness, community spirit, and a willingness to actively shape our communities to sustainably serve and shelter us. We are piloting this community building concept in the Chicago Metropolitan Area and envision it as a template that can be used anywhere in the country.

Cooperatives are an ideal business model because they are member-owned, operated, and governed and exist to meet the member-owners’ needs.

New Community Vision, LLC is here to educate the public about the rich potential of a cooperative approach to enliven a community and galvanize resources. We host events, articulate the vision, and drum up support.

If you are cooperative-minded and feel inspired by this vision, let’s talk to explore what skills and capacities we can leverage to achieve a greater whole faster. We want to consider potential partnerships with those who share the vision and can contribute to the success of this professional enterprise.

Please read Social club membership & housing information database and visit New Community Vision, LLC to get an idea of my work.

These are areas of immediate opportunity:

  • Technical / Website / Database (CRM or similar)
  • Finance / Bookkeeping / Accounting
  • Marketing /writing / editing / social media /
  • Social work, especially geriatric and Medicare-related issues

I live in Chicago and will host frequent gatherings throughout the metro area because I believe that establishing healthy social relationships must precede any consideration of housing or home sharing. Some of this work can be done online.
