What is Our Home, Inclusive Community Collaborative?
How did you get your start?
Not finding existing options that fit her family’s needs, Alicia became determined to create an integrated, diverse inclusive community where people could purchase homes and come together around strengths and common interests, rather than around need and deficits. Combining concepts from the co-housing community and best-practices for community integration, Our Home, ICC was built to support the needs and dreams of one family, but by its very nature, it also fills a significant hole in community support for the wider population.
Have you always been a nonprofit organization?
What projects have you worked on?
Our Home-Cathedral Park will feature approximately 28 condo units, as well as indoor and outdoor community spaces. Based on the cohousing model, all units will be available for home ownership. We are working with several community partners to bring this into being, and are excited for our growing community.
Additionally, Founding Neighbor Alicia DeLashmutt has been a speaker at both disability advocacy and cohousing conferences, and works to bring the unique Our Home, ICC model to developers and housing providers across the US.
