Review for A HOME IN COMMUNITY, Corvallis, OR, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I love being able to see my money in action. Donating to AHIC produces a concrete result -- our neighborhood has a sense of inclusiveness because of the AHIC affordable units. It keeps us all mindful about accessibility issues, so people's behavior changes.

Review for A HOME IN COMMUNITY, Corvallis, OR, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

AHIC provides a housing unit in a close-knit cohousing community for someone with physical disability and who lacks the means to buy into the community. It integrates someone into a village-like atmosphere, someone who might otherwise live a very isolated life. AHIC provides the financial means to enable the members of the community to then act as their best selves, taking care of one of their own in other ways. AHIC makes the cohousing complex it occupies, and the entire neighborhood around it, a better and more humane place to live. It keeps us, as neighbors, thinking about accessibility issues, when we might otherwise just not notice them.
