MOSAIC is a housing cooperative and intentional community consisting of two houses near Northwestern University in Evanston, IL. Through cooperative action, MOSAIC strives to create a diverse, inclusive community that inspires and empowers creative, conscious, and sustainable living.
Each of our houses is run democratically, and we all contribute our own labor in order to keep our housing costs affordable. We collectively share responsibilities for household chores and administrative tasks involved in running the co-op, and we make house decisions by consensus.
As a housing co-op, we place a great value on community. We share communal meals five nights a week, and have weekly house meetings where decisions are made about everyday life in the co-op. We throw parties, open mic nights, movie nights, and other community events. All of this makes our co-op a unique, inspiring, and supportive community to thrive in.
