In Our Words: 

Sofia Co-op is a beautiful two-story home with 7 bedrooms, 3 porches and a backyard with raised-bed gardens and a chicken coop. We have seven rooms, and our ages range from early twenties to early fifties. We all take turns cooking, cleaning and doing chores. We enjoy several home- cooked, vegetarian meals per week together. Sofia House is a beautiful and dynamic community that strives to be as eco-friendly, family friendly, social justice minded, and LGBTQ affirming as possible. Our house is clean and cozy. We want to live with people who are more than just housemates, but rather part of a bigger family.
