HDFC co-op shareholders hold a rich history of resistance, cooperation, and democratic community control. Since the 1970s, co-op shareholders have literally rebuilt their neighborhoods to create lasting affordable housing. UHAB is building an archive to preserve the history of our movement.
This effort was made possible through a collaboration with Interference Archive, as well as the many co-op members and community groups that donated time and materials to share their stories.
Interested in preserving your HDFC’s story? UHAB works with HDFC shareholders to record their histories. Our homesteading oral history program can help you archive the rich history of your HDFC, or work with a neighboring HDFC. Contact info[at]uhab.org to learn more.

This is a living archive! If you’d like to donate materials or be interviewed about your experience with cooperative housing, reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
