Through the generous hands of the TDF Foundation, Washington Square Co-op has been awarded a grant in the form of a brand new computer lab. (See picture at right.) Five state of the art Dell computers are completely loaded with Windows Microsoft 8 and Windows office 2013. Members will also enjoy the benefit of having an onsite computer coordinator for the next year, also paid for by the generosity of the TDF grant. The coordinator (highly qualified technician, Marsha Edwards) is available for twenty hours each week to teach and assist members with computer classes. The classes will help members wherever their skillset is at starting with basic computer skills and more advanced ones that teach them how to begin to use Microsoft Office and setup and navigate social media, such as email and Facebook. Several members have sat at the computer for the first time in their lives and have just opened the door to a whole new technological world.

Resident members have a choice of many activities from being voted into office to assist in the democratically controlled daily business of the co-op to just enjoying the leisurely slow daily living in their apartments. The co-op offers daily trips to shopping, fun filled outings, monthly trips to different co-ops for educational meetings. These trips are provided by the co-op’s fourteen passenger van. In the evenings, group gatherings are set up and by a volunteer activities committee for meals, game nights, bingo nights, movie nights, and any other suggestion provided by the resident members. Washington Square now has two full time Service Coordinators to assist the members with problems and to help the members live a long and comfortable life at Washington Square.

Washington Square Co-op is located near downtown Kalamazoo. The co-op is walking distance to the farmers market, the Edison neighborhood library, and Bronson Hospital is less than two miles from the co-op.
