Vision and Values

Environmentally Sustainable Community Part of our Mission

At Germantown Cohousing our whole is greater than the sum of our parts. We actively embrace community, plan for sustainability, value diversity, and nurture creativity in a welcoming urban environment.

This is our mission statement. We repeat it in a few places throughout the site because it is so important to us and to our potential neighbors. With this vision, our values have deeper meaning. We cannot change the world but we can shape part of it, creating a modern sense of community we think will catch on.
