Co-operation Housing would like to officially welcome our newest full member, Mia Mia Housing Collective. Mia Mia is located in the town of Denmark in Western Australia.
The community consists of 15 homes, the majority is constructed with mud bricks. The first six home were built in the early 90s.
Co-operation Housing is excited to welcome Mia Mia (back) to the co-op housing sector. As one of the residents said "it feels a bit like coming home". Under the co-operative housing model, Mia Mia members are empowered to make decisions about the management and maintenance of their homes. As the umbrella organisation for housing co-ops, Co-operation Housing provides support where needed.
Mia Mia membership will work towards strengthening and growing the housing co-operative sector in WA.
