Review for A Home in Community, Corvallis, OR, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My apartment at CoHo Ecovillage is the first apartment home that I've had in my 40years as an adult. I feel like part of the community at CoHo by enjoying the benefits such as friendships, assistance and learning from others while being able to give back to the community by contributing my time and abilities to further the goal of CoHo Ecovillage.

Review for A Home in Community, Corvallis, OR, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

A Home In Community (AHIC) was created to buy an apartment at Coho Ecovillage that would be rented to a person with a physical disability. I have no voluntary movement below my neck, due to Multiple Sclerosis (MS). It has been a challenge for me to be engaged in my community. I am the person that has been living in the AHIC funded apartment for the last 5 years. This has given me the opportunity to live in a co-housing community. The opportunities to be engaged in Coho are tremendous. I can simply roll out the front door of my apartment and engage with my neighbors. I can simply use my wheel chair to attend event in the community common house and neighbors homes or just go outside and talk to somebody. AHIC has made all of this possible.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I don't believe that any changes are necessary.

Review for A Home in Community, Corvallis, OR, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I am the current resident of the unit that was purchased by A Home In Community (AHIC). Living in CoHo Ecovillage for the last five years has been a life altering experience for me. I know and talk regularly with my neighbors. I feel like I am part of the community in CoHo which was never a feeling I had at the other places I rented. The community meals, community get-to-gathers such as barbeques, music events, movie nights, and work parties greatly increase my feeling that I am part of this community.
