As the support person for a single parent, I advise balancing your community with a good number of grandparent types who have the time and patience to care for young children. What single parents need is help from other adults who do not have children. Two single parents can join households or share childcare but this adds complexity and is not always practical. A balance of adults who are not currently housing children can be a great help. Since cohousing is based on self selection, you will also have to develop criteria for inclusion. This may be difficult and would be easier if a foundation owned the housing and the families rented. Unless you plan to build a succession of communities that start with households that fit your criteria and evolve into something else, what happens when a family no longer fits your criteria?
