About 50 | Fifty
Eden Housing is celebrating 50 years of providing affordable homes for individuals and families throughout California. To mark this milestone, we will be sharing fifty of our favorite stories, unveiling one story a week as a video, podcast or photo story. We will tell stories about our residents and how their lives have changed because of an affordable home; about our communities and how we build and improve neighborhoods; and about us, our team, our partners and our work to provide solutions in a changing, challenging world.
We believe that these stories can provide a way to create positive shifts in attitudes and perceptions about affordable housing and the people who live there. Our hope is that this campaign will reach beyond those of us that already support affordable housing, to members of our communities who may not have been aware of, or perhaps have even resisted our work in the past.
We want to spread the good news about how our homes create a launching pad for children to go to college and families to get ahead, and a landing place for seniors and those with special needs to live independently with dignity and grace.
