In Santa Fe, NM we are working with the Santa Fe Community Housing Trust
which has built over 300 affordable houses, is currently developing another
180 and has helped over 1000 families of limited means get into their first
house.  They are the developer for ElderGrace, an affordable, senior
cohousing community of 28 homes on 3.52 acres within the city of Santa Fe.
Please visit our web site  We already have 3 single men
who are in no way wealthy.

Nice. Most of the comments from men across the USA re CoHousing is that it
is too expensive for them to allow them to consider it for their retirement.
  If you look at the home [ CoHousing] prices in AZ, NM, CO, Baja CA, Sur,
MX, it is obvious to me that the wealthier are being targeted for much of
the current CoHousing across our Nation.
  Time that we thought of the less fortunate.
