Senior Housing

Since 2001, CDS has worked collaboratively with several partners to help grow the senior housing co-op community in the region.

We are a partner in the planning and implementation of an annual conference for senior housing co-op members, managers and developers that traditionally attracts almost 300 attendees from many different states. In addition, quarterly education events for members and managers are also hosted by Cooperative Network.

We have partnered with the Senior Cooperative Foundation to develop the Senior Co-op Housing Education Program (SCHEP), a training program for member-owners.  This multi-module training has been delivered to over 3,000 new owners, and can be provided to your co-op as well!

For developers seeking to learn about the successful senior co-op form of housing, we encourage you to contact our partners at Cooperative Housing Resources. This organization has deep expertise and can respond to your development and finance-related questions.
