The Intentional Communities Booth in the Oregon Country Fair’s Community Village is staffed by representatives from a variety of communities of choice, residence, and practice from around the region. They explore a variety of ways for humans to be together, live together, and work together with mutual respect and intentionality.

East Blair Housing Coop

The East Blair Housing Cooperative’s mission is to create an intentional community of low cost,
residential housing which:

  1. values and encourages community, creativity, diversity, civility, cooperation, and accountability among its member and its neighbors;
  2. cooperatively owns and manages itself;
  3. assesses carrying charges (rent) at affordable (i.e., at or below HUD’s Fair Market Rent) levels and accepts Section 8 vouchers so as to be able to maintain its tradition of providing the opportunity of quality, occupant operated housing that gives preference to people who earn low incomes and/or would not otherwise have access to such housing;
  4. provides opportunity for its member to learn skills such as consensus decision making conflict
    resolution, conflict resolution, home repair, gardening, caregiving, and nonprofit management; and promotes cooperative and affordable housing in the community at large.
