Our vision and mission statements were adopted at a general member's meeting on June 9, 2019.

Our Vision

In a spirit of generosity, gratitude, and social engagement we provide, maintain, and promote not-for-profit co-operative housing, working together to care for our homes, our land, and our community.

Our Mission

As stewards:

  • We maintain our community now and for the future through participation, education, and a commitment to financial and environmental sustainability.
  • We govern democratically according to the principles and values of the co-operative movement.
  • We balance concern for the needs of our co-op with those of the individual members.
  • We nurture an inclusive community that is compassionate, caring, safe, healthy, and affordable.
  • We contribute to the life and organization of our co-op and of the wider community.
  • We resolve conflicts through open and effective communication.
