Documentary Screening “The Best of Both Worlds: Cohousing’s Promise.

Adults, Seniors Open 3/1/2021 4/28/2021

Join us on Zoom for a screening of “The Best of Both Worlds” and a discussion of the film. The idea of cohousing communities is a Danish creation dating back to the 1960s. These communities are intentionally designed private houses that surround a shared space. Many of the shared spaces, or common house, include shared kitchens, recreational space, living/dining rooms and laundry facilities. Though households have private income, the community plans and provides many activities as a group. Though a seemingly “new” idea in the US, cohousing communities have pilot programs as close to us as in the Poconos. There is a growing interest in cohousing communities for seniors as well as for younger people who may not be able to afford more traditional housing. “The Best of Both Worlds” explores the idea of cohousing, the benefits, and how it has positively affected the lives of those who live in them. Registration is required. A Zoom link to this online event will be emailed to you after registration is complete. This screening is in collaboration with the Northern Lancaster Hub. Funding has been provided by the Pennsylvania Humanities Council and the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) as part of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act of 2020. Ages 12+.
