Resources to help you learn, get support, get started:
Women for Living in Community is a leading resource on this movement of community based living arrangements. Whether you are seeking to join a community, research what it’s like to live in one or want to learn about this growing phenomenon, check back here. We’ll continue to update our books, articles, associations and provide a listing of other community related networks. If you have any resources that you feel we could add, please click here to submit it and share. See below for our Monthly Featured resource.
This month’s featured resource is the recently published, How We Live Now: redefining home and family in the 21st century by Bella DePaulo. I was interviewed as part of this book (featured in Chapter 3) but that’s not the only reason for adding it as a great resource. Years of research and many interviews were conducted which resulted in an in-depth, real, and personal review of how our changing perceptions of home and community are changing the way we live. I’ve written a summary here but I encourage you to read it as you explore what your future community may look like.
