In 1968, eight representatives of housing cooperatives in Madison came back from a co-op conference in Washington, D.C. and decided 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 four decades. Currently, MCC has almost two hundred members at eleven houses in downtown Madison, Wisconsin.
Madison Community Cooperative (MCC) strives 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.
Houses require an average of about five hours/week
2-5 times per week
