A roof overhead isn't always enough to keep you warm. This program looks at how both the poor and the middle class have found the shelter of community by changing the ways they think about housing. Examples include co-ops and new forms of co-housing where people live separately in tightly packed housing but often share a communal building and open space, as well as the responsibility of making decisions for the whole community.
