CARE FAMILY LLC develops low-cost supportive co-housing that serve the frail elderly and adults with special needs in "lodges" where residents help each other in an "extended family" format. Lodges provide private rooms for rent in a larger facility with common, shared space for community building and community living.
CARE FAMILY LLC seeks to help communities develop not-for-profit co-housing units to provide low-cost supportive housing for the economically disadvantaged who need housing and supportive communities to live in.
Community location is placed at the center of the zip/postal code, city/state, or city/country (not based on street addresses)
