    Daybreak will be participating in National Cohousing Annual Open House 2017. Click here for the list of all communities participating.

    This year, the event falls on the same day as the worldwide People's Climate March. Our community is going to have a People's Climate Movement: PDX march poster making party, and we'll have supplies on hand if our open house visitors would like to make posters too. We'll also offer tours of the common spaces and homes.

    We do NOT have any homes available for new residents at this time and do not anticipate having homes available in the immediate future. If folks are interested in hearing about homes if/when they come available, and about hearing more about the open house and other Daybreak events, please add yourself to the "I'm Interested List."

    Please RSVP with the total number in your party and mention how many people would like to make a poster so we can be sure to have enough supplies on hand. Click here to RSVP.
    This is a family friendly event. Kids are very welcome!
