Get a rare opportunity to see the city's first cohousing neighborhood. Learn about the state of the movement around the country, and how you and your group can participate and get the help you need in finding, forming, and building community. Enjoy free bagels from Boichik, rated "Best New York Bagel" by the New York Times.
Open to all, but RSVP is required so we can be sure to have enough bagels for you.
The event and community will be photographed so CohoUS can tell the story of Cohousing with professional photos. Please confirm your consent to be included in pictures with your RSVP.
A social worker to the core, Trish brings over a decade of experience working in nonprofit and higher education with a focus on community engagement, strategic partnerships and event design. For the past 7 years, she has served as the Director of Community Engagement at the University of Denver’s Graduate School of Social Work (GSSW), leading community engagement initiatives and creating gatherings that advance social justice. Her consulting group, Storyspring Consulting, provides strategy, facilitation and coaching to nonprofits, social changemakers, and intentional communities.
Trish is a founding member of Denver's Aria Cohousing and Chase Street Commons, a micro-village built upon the principles of cohousing. She is a Tedx speaker and a passionate advocate for housing solutions that address our collective crises of loneliness, environmental degradation and housing inaccessibility. Above all, she believes that humans need one another for meaning and survival, and that collective housing is poised to be among the signature movements of our time.
See her TED Talk about Cohousing:
The Cohousing Association of the US (CohoUS) is a national nonprofit that seeks to advance cohousing and shift the culture toward a new American dream where every home is surrounded by caring, collaborative neighbors who use less of the earth’s resources while living an abundant life.
CohoUS fosters a more cooperative society by supporting cohousing communities and educating the public about the benefits of cohousing.
Our vision is to shift the culture toward a new American dream where every home is surrounded by caring, collaborative neighbors who use less of the earth’s resources while living an abundant life.
East Bay Cohousing is part of Cohousing California, and a longtime supporter of the national organization.
