UUCC handles all of the business of the Lucy Stone and Margaret Moseley Cooperatives that might normally be done by a landlord. UUCC holds the mortgage on our house, coordinates the capital improvements, and works to further our mission by building partnerships with ally organizations and growing communities of spiritual practice, sustainability, and social change. The membership of UUCC annually elects a board to offer leadership. All residents of the houses owned by UUCC are members. We are also currently supported by an awesome administrative coordinator!
