Stone Soup Cooperative is a housing cooperative created in Chicago, Illinois in 1997. A collective of activists working and living in Chicago began renting a former convent with the goal of creating an intentional community for "Joy and Justice."
The cooperative began by renting a former convent and dividing the space for 18 people. In 2000, Stone Soup expanded with an additional 11 people and the purchase of a large house near the original building. By the spring of 2002, a third building and another 7 members were added to the collective.
