Sophia Community is an intentional community living in a lovely big house in Hyde Park, near the University of Chicago.
Four young women who had all spent a year doing volunteer work in inner-city Chicago neighborhoods and living with Catholic Sisters founded Sophia Community in 1993. Inspired by the Sisters’ life, they created their own form of community life. Several years ago, we moved from an apartment building into Quaker House, where we manage the house and guest business on behalf of the 57th Street Meeting of Friends (Quakers)
In 2017 we consist of 2 families and 4 single adults aged 2-60 years.
Take a look at some photos of our life over the years.
