Village Hearth community members are now moving into our new homes! We currently have six homes occupied and many more of us plan to move in over the next few weeks. We are still looking for a few new neighbors. Don’t miss out! Please contact us asap if you are interested in joining our wonderful, dynamic community of LGBTQ adults, friends and allies.
We built 28 single-level accessible homes and a beautiful common house on six of our fifteen beautiful wooded acres just 15 minutes from progressive and culturally vibrant downtown Durham, NC with the guidance of Katie McCamant and Charles Durrett
We are the first LGBT-focused 55+ cohousing community in North America. Our members are committed to mutual support and bring a wide variety of skills and interests to share. We are LGBT and straight, coupled and single, still working and retired, plus our pets. We look forward to eating the food grown in our community garden; having classes in the woodworking shop and art studios; hiking, bicycling and kayaking at the many nearby natural areas; holding social justice workshops and concerts in the great room; and enjoying each other’s company on our front porches and common house terrace.
For more information, visit our website, and sign up for our monthly newsletter. Follow us on Facebook. We are not holding in-person events during the COVID-19 crisis but we are holding regularly scheduled “Meet and Greets” and “Nitty Gritty” information sessions on zoom. For more information please email Pat at or phone Margaret 561-714-8009. We look forward to talking to you.
