  • Complete your assigned labor/chores (typically 4-5 hours per week); and
  • Work with your housemates to build a community that allows every member to thrive as their unique self. 

We do not condone nor will we tolerate any form of harassment, racism, sexism, bullying, or hostility towards a person or group on the basis of their race, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, class, national origin, disability, weight, height, religion, age, marital status, and/or political affiliation.
