We are looking for self-motivated people to join our team!
This is an opportunity to contribute to this community center while living on-site. We have 8 tiny home structures surrounding our garden area, which creates a balance of privacy in your own space while also being community centered. Rent ranges from $465-650 plus $50 utilities/month. We buy food communally, which you can choose to opt into at ~$25-50/month.
We are on our way to making our communal bathroom (toilet) and living room space wheelchair accessible, but we are not there yet. Access to the living room space requires 6 steps up. Shower room is not wheelchair accessible. Living here is a mixed indoor and outdoor experience which requires going outdoors from your tiny home to reach the communal bathroom and living area space. There are several fragrances in the space, i.e. plant medicines and nourishing cooking.
Passion, creative spirit, willingness, flexibility, and excitement to share and grow in community! Excellent communications skills are required.
We prioritize queer, trans, femme, Black, Indigenous, people of color, working class and poor people, and people with generational ties to the Bay Area.
We are looking for a lovely person to temporarily rent one of our tiny dwellings, and to be part of our community through July.
We invite you to cook and eat communal meals with us, share space in the garden, find expression with your art, music, and culture, or contribute your skills and interests with us in other ways you feel called to during your stay at PLACE.
The Nest rent contribution is $565 plus $50/month for utilities:

You are someone who understands structural injustice and is eager to do the day-to-day work around the concept of money to build a future worth living for.
