History

Winona Seniors Co-op appeals to older adults who seek a multicultural,
multi-ethnic community
.

 

The congregation of Beth Sholom Synagogue built our Co-op with the goal of providing affordable housing for low-income seniors from the Jewish community. 


On April 7th. 1981, the Co-op was incorporated under the Co-operative Corporations Act as Cedarvale Housing Co-operative Inc.  In September 1981, Beth Sholom Synagogue handed ownership over to the members of Cedarvale Housing Co-operative.  Members then voted to rename our Co-op and it was then re-incorporated under Winona Housing Co-operative Inc.


For many years membership in the Co-op was restricted to seniors aged sixty-five and over. However, as time went on, this age restriction was lowered to fifty years.  


Winona Housing Co-op continues to appeal to older adults who seek a multicultural, multi-ethnic community where all members are required to participate in the running of the building.
