We have a room open for a young person who does not want to enter the conventional American roadway to career and consumerism, or an older person who wants to leave it for a different path. We are not a typical urban CW community. We are diverse and eclectic in religious orientations. We offer low-cost housing for self-reliant people, but do not have enough space for dependent individuals in need. We have gathered around shared commitments to CW/Gandhian social justice and nonviolence values. We are very active in local social justice movements, and we grow a lot of our own food in intensively cultivated urban gardens. Our network of associated houses has grown and branched out from my own 66 years of active engagement in CW communities and movements for world peace. I interested, call Karl Meyer, 615-322-9523 for mutual conversation and questions.

We shut down in 2021 due to Covid and the need to do a rash of renovations to our house but we’re trying to get started again. We love to have your help. The need in San Jose is great as we have a burgeoning homeless population and an ever-increasing wealth gap.
