Members are still getting settled in and unpacking while they move into their community owned afforadble house.

Kalamazoo Collective Housing Recognized on MiBiz

Cooperative living in Michigan is proving to be a great urban housing alternative, "those who are opting for these shared living arrangements are doing it more out of financial necessity or as a way to follow their social beliefs," according to Simons article Co-ops, collectives offer urban housing options. Kalamazoo Collective Housing is recognized for the work in Kalamazoo, Michigan where alumni Hannah Reicheil had her first collective experience at Fletcher Collective on Walnut Street.
