Mission Statement

Our mission is to improve the Madison community by providing low-cost, not-for-profit cooperative housing for very low to moderate-income people and to be inclusive of underrepresented and marginalized groups of the community.


In 1968, eight representatives of cooperatives in Madison came back from a co-op conference in Washington, D.C., and decided that they wanted to combine their strength to form an umbrella organization that would provide stability and better services to their members. That federation became Madison Community Cooperative, which has gone through many changes in membership and direction over the past quarter-century.
