Rivendell Housing Cooperative was founded in 1973 with the forethought
of establishing an intentional community to serve as an alternative to
the typical landlord/tenant relationship. It is our mission to provide
quality affordable housing while fostering an organization that enables
members to work together for the betterment of our community. For more
than forty years we’ve made our home in downtown Lansing. In 2012 we
decided to expand–In keeping with our Lord of the Rings theme, we
christened our new home The Shire.
