Member Requirements

As members of Ford Road Housing Co-op you will need to attend two General Meetings each year, and volunteer a minimum four hours each month. These volunteer hours are per unit, not per person.

There are many different committees in the co-op that help organize individuals when it comes to volunteer hours; for example:

  • Board of Directors
  • Cleaning Committee (Adult Building and Family Building)
  • Fire and Safety Committee
  • Landscaping Committee
  • Maintenance Committee
  • Newsletter Committee
  • Participation Committee
  • Pet Committee
  • Recycling Committee
  • Security Committee
  • Social Committee
  • Welcoming Committee

Not all committees are in need of members at any given time, but there are always chances to volunteer with your particular skills in one or more of these groups. Volunteer hours may also be divided among people living in your unit.

These volunteer hours are how community living operates smoothly and how we are able to keep costs down.
