The Boulder Housing Coalition (BHC) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit Community Housing Development Organization dedicated to creating affordable, community-enhancing, cooperative housing for the people of Boulder county. We currently manage two permanently affordable rental cooperatives in central Boulder: Masala and Chrysalis. These co-ops have been home to ~25 people for the last 10-15 years. These communities make up the first affordable cooperative housing system in Colorado. We are working to create a federation of housing cooperatives that will provide both affordable rental and home ownership opportunities.
New North Haven Co-op Opening in September, 2013!
In April of this year the BHC purchased an 8-unit apartment building from Boulder Housing Partners. Situated at the corner of 9th and North Streets, it’s just a couple of blocks from the Ideal Market, North Boulder Park and the high-frequency Skip bus line that runs up and down Broadway. We’re hard at work transforming it into a new, super energy efficient, family oriented co-op called North Haven! North Haven will have two 2 bedroom apartments reserved especially for families, and a common house with 18 bedrooms and a fantastic, fully stocked kitchen, as well as other shared amenities.
The addition of this third co-op will nearly double the size of our co-op system, give us even more bulk buying power, and a broader extended community network. North Haven is interviewing potential members and signing leases now. If you might be interested in living at North Haven, you should submit an application and come to one of our core-group potlucks.
