There was a segment on National Public Radio's All Things Considered
news show today about a community in western Massachusetts which sounds a
lot like cohousing tho it has a special purpose.

>From their web site:
 Treehouse at Easthampton Meadow is an intergenerational, planned
 community for families who adopt children from foster care and elders who
 wish to be "extended family members".  A commitment to children

 Treehouse at Easthampton Meadow is a neighborhood where children will
 find not just parents and a permanent, loving home, but also "honorary
 grandparents", friends and an entire community designed to support
 children whose lives have been impacted by foster care.
