Mission Statement

We come together to create a neighborhood that is a multi-generational intentional community, living among caring neighbors of similar interests and agreed-upon values with whom we can share our lives. We are committed to participating actively in creating and maintaining opportunities for frequent interaction and sustaining meaningful relationships with each other beyond our own individual households.

Community Description

We began general outreach and education in September 2014. Since then, we have been meeting monthly to build community and move toward establishing a multi-generational cohousing community in the Fremont, California area within 4-5 years. We have completed Eris Weaver’s workshop on group process and McCamant & Durrett’s “Getting It Built” workshop. We are actively searching for a site, continually educating ourselves, and welcoming potential members.

Additional Comments

We are planning to build a neighborhood of 25-30 families in Fremont, California. We envision a culture of support for one another, striving for deeper friendships and relationship building among neighbors by sharing such activities as community meals, special events, neighborhood work projects, and community management, as well as spontaneous interaction. We are actively seeking land and working with Katie McCamant of CoHousing Solutions.

Our target construction date is Fall 2018.
