Date Incorporated: 2012
Purpose: Affordable housing
Land Holdings: Four multi-family homes; Received property through donation and city funding.
Governance Notes: Board is self-replicating, but remains tripartite and responsible to membership; Residents organize and are in charge of their own operations within the multi-family units.  Uses “dividend housing” ownership model, which offers a 3rd option between homeownership and rental; Residents build equity in a financial account rather than property, this allows them to budget money through their care and residency ofon the property, but relieves them of the financial burden of owning a home.  Leases contail a scheduled legal agreement for earning credits towards an equity system which operates like a morgage; credits are earned through day-to-day upkeep and participation in community organizing, thus this model seeks to remove both property and social duties from the market.
