Hello M Henner, I believe Co-housing communities will qualify for the local Volunteer-labor pool, provided by Court-Ordered Community Service. There is no revenue transaction with Court-Ordered Community Service, and requirements for using Volunteer labor will be much simpler than qualifying for State revenue assistance. Penalties have always revolved around compensating injured parties, communities, or time served. Law enforcement / judicial revenue is secured in fixed state / federal budgets, not by assessments of fines; the corruption incentive would be disastrous. Unless Court-Ordered Community Service can be subjected to local corruption, the laws surrounding trafic-offence, civil, tort, and criminal penalties have no mandate to revenue quotas. Although I wonder about collusion with corporate-insurance interests. I can not see how state assistance is implied, or why Co-Housing organizations would not qualify for the Volunteer-labor pool provided by Court-Ordered community service. Much less can I understand how the qualifying agencies currently listed in my area, can be so so diverse and numerous if registering to use this Volunteer labor pool was that difficult. It certainly would not hurt to find out.

I couldn't understand why anyone would think that co- housing would qualify. True, co-housing is a good thing. True, some are organized as non-profit co-ops. But that doesn't make co-housing a kind of charity that should get help from the state. No matter how organized, the people in co-housing are cooperating to organize housing for their own benefit. Not for society's. If a bunch of rich guys were organizing a golf club/country club on a cooperative basis, so they could all play golf together on a beautiful course, would we think that they were entitled to court ordered volunteer service just because they organized as a non profit or cooperative?
