Amikaro Cohousing, a formative urban cohousing project in Victoria, British 
Columbia is developing a cohousing project that will include 5 families with 
adult children with severe disabilities and the remaining units populated by a 
diversity of age groups. Just like with seniors who suffer from social 
isolation, this group of disabled adults, represented by their aging adult 
mothers (50’ and 60’s)and sometimes caregivers is looking to build an 
intentional community that is fully inclusive, removing all the barriers.

My question is whether anyone knows of any cohousing project that could be a 
successful model for this type of project. If there is no model, can you 
suggest why such an innovation has not developed?

Thank you for your thoughts.
