"It takes a village to raise a child"

The old African proverb is appropriately applied within cohousing communities. The village looks out for the children. An entire community of people, interacting and acknowledging the communities youth, to add experiences and to raise the communities children in a safe and healthy environment. This does not mean the entire community is responsible for raising the children, only that the community looks out for each other. There are countless sources outlining the incredible benefits of raising children within a cohousing community. Below are some of our favorites.
