Directory of Co-operatives
Abeona was founded in 1975, during the squatting and short life housing movements of that period. In 1983 it was registered to provide permanent co-operative housing through the acquisition and development of property. The Co-op owns and manages 44 permanent dwellings in North Camden in the form of mostly one bedroom units although there are several larger family units. Abeona remains a diverse community of individuals, couples and families representing a mix of ethnicity, gender, culture and sexual orientation. Some units are specifically designated for disabled members.
