Explanation of Twin Oaks' Property Code

Basic Scheme

I. Basic Scheme
You don't pay to join. You don't get anything when you leave. The Community supports you while you're here. Twin Oaks Provides for its members on the basis of need or equality. Equality is a fundamental community value which informs the property code. We try to avoid displays of wealth which may give rise to envy. With the exceptions described below, we expect members not to use outside income or pre-existing assets during their membership in Twin Oaks.
