NeighborWorks® Montana’s August newsletter included a roundup of activity from Northwood Community, a 44-site ROC in Pablo, Mont. Here’s what they had to say:
Sherman said, “Being involved with a co-op pushes you to learn who you’re financially involved with; it forces you to put yourself out there because it’s such a big responsibility.” Working with NeighborWorks Montana and ROC USA to become owners of and take responsibility for the land underneath their neighborhood enabled residents to create and enforce their own rules, have more control over the cost and permanence of their homes, and make the incredible improvements to the property.
Thanks to Northwood and NeighborWorks Montana for sharing the good news! If you have good news to share from a ROC, send it to Mike at firstname.lastname@example.org.
