The Cohome Story
Ours is a story of family.
Nathaniel Diskint, inspired by his younger brother Jeremy who has Down's Syndrome, sought to create a vibrant and inclusive housing program. In 2017, Nathaniel and the Diskint family founded Cohome, a non-profit coliving concept where adults with and without disabilities live and grow with intention. Our family has grown to include residents, families, volunteers, employees, and supporters who constantly breathe life into Cohome, and make it the joyous community it is today.
Our core values of Inclusion, Community and Respect represent our highest priorities and fundamental driving forces. They’re what we stand for and are at the heart of everything we do.
Everyone deserves to live in the least restrictive environment possible. In our experience, inclusion is more fun!
Community starts at home. We invest time, energy and resources into strengthening our relationships, both inside Cohome and in our communities.
Come as you are! Cohome housemates commit to approach each other with respect and to foster trust and connection.
