My adult son and I moved to the Brown Shingle Collective four years ago following other shared housing experiences, and after losing our home during the mortgage crisis. As a Bay Area native and a teacher working in the East Bay, I can just afford 25% of my salary towards rent, and am supported by a community of progressive and like-minded neighbors who equally share in the collective work of maintaining these affordable homes for working-class residents."
BACLT RESIDENT & BOARD MEMBER
Living in a land trust cooperative made it possible for me to start a family and remain in the Bay Area, which is something very few of my peers are able to manage given the affordability crisis. And it's much more than affordable rent. I get to raise my family in a multi-generational, multi-racial community, with access to high quality public schools, libraries, and parks! I wish more people had the kind of stability the land trust has given me and my family, and hope this model keeps growing!"
