EDEN Programs

EDEN offers many different programs designed to help persons with disabilities and/or coming from homelessness realize their full potential. We own and operate 12 permanent supportive housing complexes with 738 units and more than 200 units of scattered-site housing. Supportive services are available for all programs, and those with on-site services are noted in the descriptions below. For a print-friendly version of our client brochure, click here.

EDEN follows the HOUSING FIRST model. Before addressing any other issues, Housing First enables people experiencing the highest barriers to housing find a permanent place to call home. Lease compliance is the only requirement, and participation in supportive services is voluntary. We partner with several social service agencies so that tenants are able to maintain their independence and fulfill their aspirations. Supportive services are client-driven, and tailored to the needs of each resident. More than 97% of residents opt to participate in an array of on-site supportive services.

EDEN is familiar with the Ohio Landlord Tenant Law and the Federal Fair Housing Act. We assist individuals in need of information, advocacy, or referrals to appropriate organizations for assistance. Visit CLIENT RIGHTS and CLIENT RESOURCES for info.
