Cohousing's Affinity with Unitarian Universalist Seniors

The 2019 Winter Issue of UU World, the magazine of the Unitarian Universalist Association, features a great article on cohousing and its affinity with UU seniors.


Nearly 13 percent of cohousing residents identify as Unitarian Universalists, according to a 2012 survey.


While cohousing advocates praise the governance and community aspects of cohousing, the article is clear-eyed about cohousing's downsides: a lack of diversity, financial costs, and the need for residents to grow new interpersonal skills.
