Living in a rather expensive area of the U.S. – the San Francisco Bay Area – I have thought about how nice it would be to share many of my expenses with someone else. Well, some of us might now have a way to do just that without having to commit to an intimate relationship: CoAbode is offering to match up single mothers for co-housing. What a neat idea! And you don’t have to share your living space either, CoAbode also has a Circle of Friends, which is more community building than house-sharing. I will have to check this out!
Well, I signed up… The SF Bay Area group hasn’t been active since 2006. Ugh. Of course, this might not mean much but it could mean that this is yet another idea that has fallen to the wayside of too much to do… The good news is that there are quite a few newly registered single moms, most of them looking for housing.
