Hi Raines, Thanks for your explanation. A few questions you may be able to answer: How many members do v2v groups typically have? What is the typical geographic distribution of members? Are they typically within walking distance? Do they typically have a space similar to a common house? How similar? Are they more staff / social service oriented compared to cohousing? How do these two v2v websites relate? (My guess below) https://www.vtvnetwork.org (Vtv) https://www.helpfulvillage.com (Help) After studying these sites more I've tentatively concluded: Vtv is the nonprofit organization of v2v's (and other similar groups?) Help is a commercial service to vtv's. It has links to the Vtv. Both have maps Vtv's is much more extensive Vtv:277 in US, Help:51 (vtv's that use Help (?)) Fred -- Fred H.
