EDEN Affordable Housing Podcast

Time to "Make Room" in Our Communities

NEW PODCAST with Ali Solis

Make Room is exposing the human suffering and societal costs of the rental housing crisis and advocating for bold solutions that will end housing insecurity.

Since 2015, Make Room is putting a spotlight on the rental housing crisis through original research, data, and sharing the stories of families suffering in silence as they try to keep a roof over their heads.

"Make Room has worked to give renters a voice," says Ali Solis, President and CEO of Make Room, who joins us for this month's podcast.


Eden Housing Named Best Place to Work in the Bay Area

For the third consecutive year, Eden was named by the San Francisco Business Times and the Silicon Valley Business Journal as a Best Place to Work in the Bay Area!

Eden was proud to be one of the few nonprofit organizations recognized as a Best Place to Work.

Eden has won the coveted honor four times - 2012, 2015, 2016, 2017. This year, Eden competed for the first time in the Large Company (250-1000 employees) category.

We thank our Eden staff for their dedication to providing affordable homes and for making Eden a Best Place to Work!

Eden Celebrates Our Volunteers

April was Volunteer Appreciation Month and we are so thankful for our corporate, community, and resident volunteers.

More than 130 community, resident, and corporate volunteers gathered for the Eden's annual appreciation lunch held in Dublin, CA. Councilmember Melissa Hernandez welcomed Eden's volunteers on behalf of the City of Dublin.

This year, Eden had 468 volunteers who gave an astounding 12,773 hours of service to our affordable communities. THANK YOU!

We thank Silicon Valley Bank for sponsoring this year's celebration.
