Holiday Offers from Local Co-ops Developed by SCO’s Center for Family Life
Our Center for Family Life’s Co-operative Development Program has been developing local worker-owned co-operatives since 2006. The co-ops we’ve incubated are allied together as the Co-operatives United for Sunset Park (CUSP) to share ideas to mutually support and strengthen each other and the community. As the Holidays are upon us, think of our members for your cleaning, childcare, elder care, dog walking and pet care needs. A gift certificate for our services makes a great present!
