About Us : Our Mission and Values

The Mission of Rocky Hill Co-Housing is to be a thriving community 
of neighbors, whose life together fosters connectedness, learning from 
each other and living lightly on the earth.

We value and strive toward:

  1. Supporting and nurturing each community member, from infant to elder, and treating each other with kindness, compassion and respect.
  2. Welcoming people of diverse identities, including race, ethnicity, spirituality, age, ability, sexual orientation, gender identity, family composition and socio-economic status.
  3. Building relationships and connections through daily interactions, community meals, activities, celebrations, rituals, work and helping one another.
  4. Raising children together in community.
  5. A decision-making process that builds consensus by soliciting and valuing input from all, ensuring that everyone is heard and resulting in decisions that everyone can agree to live by.
  6. Resolving conflicts through honest, direct and respectful communication.
  7. Giving our care, time and work to ourselves, our families and homes, our community at Rocky Hill, the wider community and the world.
  8. Improving our collective and individual stewardship of the earth and minimizing our impact on the planet.
