My mother and son both live in a co-op. My mother is 92 years old. Without the co-op, she would likely be in a long-term care facility. In the co-op, she gets much love and support from her neighbours. Every time I visit, she is surrounded by a cluster of young handsome men, the centre of attention. She is in her element.
For both my mother and son, co-op housing has provided safe, secure, affordable housing from which to live better lives. Safe, secure and affordable housing is a right. It should be available to all who need it.
