Quaker House Residential Community (QHRC) is a semi-cooperative, socially diverse living community. We share and care for a beautiful six bedroom, turn-of-the-century house in Ann Arbor. We also share strong commitments to multi-cultural, racial, ethnic, LGBTQ inclusivity; delicious semi-vegetarian meals; simple, economical and environmentally friendly living; regular organized work and meeting activities; mature, stable, supportive relationships; open, forthright and honest communication; and friends, family and fun.
Quaker membership is not required though we respect and uphold the spiritual leadings of the Ann Arbor Quaker community (peace, nonviolence, social justice, respect for all) Common space in Quaker House is frequently used for community events. The house is smoke-free. No pets are allowed. Regular evening meals are a central activity of the residential community. Housemates share meal costs, weekly cooking and cleaning responsibilities, and regular attendance at house meetings. A monthly financial contribution is required. There is a formal application procedure.
Please call or email the Resident Host for an application.
Community location is placed at the center of the zip/postal code, city/state, or city/country (not based on street addresses)
