About Cohousing

Cohousing communities are intentional, collaborative neighborhoods. They bring together the value of private homes with the benefits of more sustainable living. That means residents actively participate in the design and operation of their neighborhoods, and share common facilities and good connections with neighbors. The US Cohousing web site offers more information including the six defining characteristics of cohousing.

Who We Are

Wissahickon Village is a cohousing community in Northwest Philadelphia PA. Our goal is to create an urban home in Philadelphia woven into the surrounding neighborhood, committed to sustainable living and intentional community. We're currently in conversation with Ken Weinstein about developing the non-sanctuary part of the Mt Airy Presbyterian Church building into cohousing. Come tour the building with Ken and WVC members Tuesday Nov 18, 2014 from 5:30-6:30 pm! Click here for more info.
