Bellingham Cohousing

Bellingham, Washington

Community image

The mission of Bellingham Cohousing is to work together to create a diverse multigenerational neighborhood of 33 homes on the historic Donovan Farm site. We intend to be supportive of one another, share resources, and strive to be stewards of the land. We aspire to collaborate with the larger Bellingham community to build housing for mixed-income households.
Bellingham Cohousing is a living situation that requires considerable neighbor participation. Bellingham Cohousing residents dedicate as much as 20 hours per month attending committee meetings, planning meals and community activities, and working on community projects.
Although Bellingham Cohousing is a supportive community, it is not designed or intended to be an environment for individuals needing therapeutic levels of attention or care.
Bellingham Cohousing offers many opportunities for neighbors to develop and foster a sense of community through:
Optional common meals several times a week
Working together on projects around the site and in groups and committees
Managing our community together through consensus-based decision-making
Community-wide celebrations of major life events: Already we have had 2 weddings and fantastic birthday celebrations
And...casual discussions, book groups, salon-style discussions, a regular mid-morning coffee klatch, barbecues and potlucks, performances and talent shows, impromptu dinner concerts, and other shared activities ranging from shopping expeditions to sea kayaking and backcountry skiing
