CoHousing Houston

Living with our neighbors
 

ABOUT

We are a group of people interested in developing the first ever cohousing community in Houston, one of the most wonderfully diverse and dynamic cities in the country.

We are still at the very beginning stages of all this - building our multi-generation group of  like-minded people, figuring out how to do this in Houston, scouting out sites, having some fun getting to know each other along the way.

Cohousing communities help prevent social isolation

Groups in Denmark and the U.S. are choosing to live in intentionally intergenerational communities, which emerged to strengthen social ties between aging seniors and their younger counterparts who are balancing work and family. People living in them say the model fosters an interdependent environment and helps everyone feel more comfortable with the process of getting older. NewsHour Weekend's Saskia de Melker reports.
