Eden Housing

Communities Wired!

Eden Housing is not only one of the oldest, but stands out as one of the most productive, successful and fastest growing nonprofit affordable housing developers in California. Eden Housing has developed and acquired more than 10,000 residential units and 73,000 square feet of commercial space in cities throughout California. However, the work is not simply defined by the housing built for low-income residents. Housing development is one critical aspect of a neighborhood revitalization strategy that also includes professional property management and on-site resident services for residents. Eden currently manages nearly 8,500 affordable units in 15 counties across the state. Through the resident services division, Eden Housing Resident Services, Inc. (EHRSI), Eden links well-built and carefully managed housing with resources that support residents in their daily lives. EHRSI’s Resident Services Coordinators are on-site to offer important information and referral services and to implement key programs, including: youth summer and after-school activities; an innovative and growing computer-assisted learning program; a scholarship program for deserving adults; financial literacy training; and support for the frail elderly. CETF funding helped Eden expand the technology program component, creating the Communities Wired! Program.
