Cohousing Association of the United States
The Cohousing Association of the United States (Coho/US) is the primary nonprofit association for cohousing residents and communities throughout the US. Coho/US's mission is to promote the awareness and development of cohousing and to provide sustenance to existing cohousing communities across the country. Based on the Danish concept of "living community," cohousing is an intentional community bringing together the value of private homes with the benefits of more sustainable living; owned, planned, designed and managed by its residents.
