ROC Northwest is program of Northwest Cooperative Development Center, a nonprofit organization devoted to assisting new and existing cooperative businesses, from daycare centers to credit unions. NWCDC supports cooperatives in Oregon, Washington, Idaho and Hawaii. Founded by cooperatives in 1979, the Center has grown into the Northwest’s leading provider of services for co-op business development. We have a long history of collaborating with communities, governments, economic development agencies and other cooperatives, sharing expertise and building cross-sector support for new and existing cooperatives. Housing cooperatives empower residents to collectively take control of their housing future, and NWCDC provides facilitation, advising, analysis and access to information and tools for cooperatives.
