Pre-teens must be supervised in the common house.  In some cases this has
meant having a "sponsor" to attend community meals when the parent could
not.  Teens (of whom we don't have many) can be in unsupervised -- doing
laundry, cooking meals, watching dvds.  There is a kids room but not a teen
room.

Somebody on the monthly chore team has the job of locking the common house
every night.  During the day several doors might be unlocked if people are
present.  There is an informal policy that you lock whatever door you leave
by when an event breaks up.

We are semi-urban, in a rundown neighborhood of working class, minority, and
immigrant population, next to a light industrial zone, some gang problems,
vandalism, etc.

at Wasatch Commons, where the car broken into this week had, "Nothing stolen
because nothing to steal," as the owner said.
