While each SHC Community will form their own guiding principles we encourage the following guidelines:

  • Ownership structure
  • Consensus centered decision-making
  • Site design promotes privacy within community
  • High walkability score is a goal
  • Co-care, co-healing and shared external care support system
  • Address changing needs through universal design
  • Environmentally friendly & energy efficient features
