If you’ve found us, you’re likely already looking into a simpler, more community-oriented way of life. We’re currently a group of parents living in the Greater Charlotte and Upper SC areas looking to create a multigenerational cohousing community in the burgeoning farm town of Waxhaw, NC.
Why are we doing this?
Resilience. Resilience is the #1 reason for the creation of this project. Resilience – defined as the ability to bounce back from setbacks – is crucial to a healthy, happy life. Resilient parents raise resilient children, creating a resilient family unit, which can help contribute to a resilient community, which can then give back to its resilient elders. Having physically and emotionally close community ties help individuals and families move through and overcome life’s inevitable hardships. Community, tribe, village, surrogate family, whatever you want to call it, we want to create ties that can withstand the worst times, share the best of times, and last a lifetime.
Is this right for you?
Do you ever find yourself lonely in your own home?
Do you wish it was easier to get together with friends and neighbors without always having to drive?
Do you want to be an active member of your community development and upkeep (condominium association, for legal naming purposes)?
Do you think you could live in a house less than 2000 sq ft, if extra-curricular space was in a common house (office workspace, kids’ playroom, large dining area, workshop, etc)?
Do you love the walk-ability of a small town, without the hustle of a big city?
Do you desire to live on a large amount of green space without having to be the only one to take care of it?
Do you yearn for a simple balance of socialization and solitude?
If you’ve answered “yes” to these questions, this community might be right for you! Our Mission Statement and Values list are still awaiting input from other invested parties, but please give our current Mission.Vision page a read!
