Co-op Initiatives works with people with disabilities to create homes of their own as alternatives to institutional and other settings.

Our housing models offer a wide range of options to people with disabilities, including homeownership, affordable rental housing and limited equity cooperatives. 

By building housing that incorporates the diversity of our society, we build neighborhoods that are truly communities. 

About Us

Co-op Initiatives is a not-for-profit corporation that was founded in 1988.  We are centrally located in Hartford, Connecticut.  We develop affordable housing cooperatives in suburban communities in greater Hartford, and our homeownership and rental programs are available statewide.

Our staff are committed to innovation in supported living and to increasing awareness in Connecticut of the housing and independent living options that now exist.  We are led by a Board of Directors comprised of many dedicated and visionary people, many of whom are themselves people living with significant disabilities.

We invite you to find out more about Co-op Initiatives and our programs.
