What’s the difference between an LFC member and a Friend of the Flower?

We offer two different types of housing:

  • Friend of the Flower – This option is for those who are interested in community living, but don’t have time for or want the commitment of making a regular contribution.  It’s also for those who are awaiting an opening in one of our member houses.  There is a strong preference for those who are community-oriented and actively engaged in the broader community.  These are 2 or 3-bedroom apartments at ~$300/month per bedroom plus utilities.
  • General Membership  –  This option is for those with a genuine interest in community building who want to make regular contributions to the LFC, to the Beechwood neighborhood, and to Rochester as a whole.  If civic engagement, community organizing, maker culture, social and environmental justice, urban agriculture, etc. are an integral part of your life (or you want them to be), this option is for you! In addition to the usual benefits that come with community-living, general members also have the option of doing a worktrade in order to offset the cost of rent and is eligible to become a member owner.
  • Member Owner – General Members who have made a significant contribution to the LFC over a sustained period of time are eligible to become member owners.  A member owner is exactly what it sounds like – a member who is a co-owner of the Little Flower Community.
