The generous charitable contributions to Twin Cities Cohousing Network received during November’s Give to the Max campaign lifted our spirits and encouraged us to continue to strive for more cohousing in the Twin Cities and all of Minnesota. Our sincere thanks go to each person who made a financial contribution in 2021 in support of our work, with special thanks for those who made a sustaining contribution of a monthly donation.
Donations from cohousing supporters allow TCCN to continue hosting Zoom events when necessary, and in-person events when possible. Many thanks to all who participated in a TCCN event and pilot course on cohousing during the past year. Additional year end charitable donations in any amount are appreciated at any time of the year and can be made on the Give Minnesota site.
Speaker: Barbara Bailey, Partnership for Affordable Cohousing
Many people wonder if affordable cohousing is an unreachable ideal. Barbara Bailey, Partnerships for Affordable Cohousing, is coming up from Iowa to talk with us on Sept. 19th about why and how it is feasible.
Barbara recently retired from The Housing Fellowship, a non-profit affordable housing developer, where she worked first as an independent accounting professional, and then as the finance manager. She worked in the fields of non-profit business and financial management for more than 35 years, and is certified by the National Development Council as a Housing Development Finance Professional. Barbara lives in Prairie Hill Cohousing a community that she helped found in Iowa City, IA.
Register to attend and engage with our guest speaker as she provides ideas for bringing cohousing within reach of people with modest means. We hope you will contribute some of your own ideas and questions to the discussion following the presentation.
