Who are Northcountry Cooperative Foundation and ROC USA, LLC?
Northcountry Cooperative Foundation is a nonprofit organization that provides educational, technical assistance, services and programs to cooperative organizations. We have assisted residents of manufactured home communities in Minnesota and Wisconsin form cooperatives and purchase their communities from private owners. After the purchase, NCF provides continuing support to the board of directors that govern the cooperatives. NCF continues to offer short training sessions to housing co-op boards of directors on topics related to governance, membership development and operational skill building. Session topics, format and location are developed in partnership with the board of each co-op. For more information, visit www.northcountryfoundation.org.
ROC USA, LLC helps resident corporations buy their manufactured home communities or “mobile home parks” from private community owners. ROC USA is a non-profit organization with a mission of making quality resident ownership possible nationwide.
We do this by first focusing on communities that are for sale and where homeowners have a strong likelihood of success if they choose to work as a group and buy it. Second, we have assembled local and regional non-profits that we have trained and certified to assist resident corporations through the purchase process and beyond. Third, we have developed a specialized source of financing for resident corporations who wish to buy their communities.
We know that with opportunity, technical support, and financing,
homeowner groups can buy, preserve and improve their communities.
We know because we have helped more than 250 communities do just that.
