Welcome to Community Homestead!

Mission: To establish and maintain a community in which people live and work together so that individuals with developmental and other disabilities can reach their fullest human potential.

What is Community Homestead?Tucked into the bluffs of the St. Croix River, just outside Osceola, WI, there is a non-profit intentional community. Founded in 1995, this community is composed of almost forty people in six households. We are all ages, all abilities and disabilities, living and working together to sustain, protect, and enrich the human and natural environment. This is Lifesharing. Everyone is a unique and valuable human being. Only by helping others do we find, and help, ourselves.

Community Members have diverse developmental abilities and disabilities. Our co-operative life enables everyone to flourish so that, together, we are a very able community.

Altair Household-One of six lifesharing houses.

We raise animals, garden, bake bread, make furniture, create crafts for sale at craft fairs, and through our catalogue, cook, eat, sing, laugh, dance, canoe, hike and have fun to together!

We are inspired by our experiences in Camphill and the world view of Anthroposophy. Together we honor the joy and spirit of life through seasonal and Christian festivals.
