What do coops do?
This website deals mainly with housing coops. To read about what Boston-area worker coops are doing, check out worcn.org.
Housing coops can have different levels of group participation.
Many houses share chores and have regular consensus-based meetings to make decisions together. Many coops maintain very affordable rent and dues for their members. Some houses throw lots of events, some houses work on projects or offer community services together, and some houses have missions, legal organization and sliding scale rent policies or large-scale money-pooling.
