Common House Creates...

  • Opportunity to deepen and expand the living out of our Leaven Community mission; specifically living more fully into relational power and neighborhood action that honors the mix of generations in a way that will draw displaced residents back to the neighborhood and catalyze similar transformations in other buildings and neighborhoods.

  • Opportunity for synergy, collaboration and empowerment among all the efforts and people working together in the same space.

  • Financial opportunities that could emerge for individuals and groups to generate revenue and improve economic well-being.

  • Opportunities to use resources to build capacity for organizations or projects.

  • Opportunity to move from a transactional system (renters with leases) to relational agreements (LC Common House Partnership Agreements).
