Age Friendly Marin Forum

“Living Together: Options in Marin”

Housing is one of our biggest challenges here in Marin so join us as we explore two creative and affordable ways to live in community: cohousing and shared housing. Whether you are single or in a couple, aging alone in your own home or apartment can be an isolating experience. There are many benefits, including social and financial to sharing a home or living in an intergenerational community of homes. Come hear from Charles Durrett (read the “Senior Cohousing Handbook,” in preparation if you can), author and architect of the Novato C Street Village Cohousing; and Karen Coppock, Senior Director, Home Match, at Covia, a Front Porch partner, for an informative and thought-provoking discussion.
