Enrich Your Life by Volunteering with Eden

Eden relies on volunteers to help enhance programming across our affordable housing portfolio, from San Ysidro to Healdsburg. As 2019 comes to an end, Eden would like to thank the corporate groups that have made this year extra special for Eden’s residents. 
 
Beginning in late September, HP Aruba volunteers celebrated fall with the residents at Cambrian Center with painting, gardening, and games. 
 
One volunteer shared, “It’s great to see how artistic some of them are. They’re thoughtful about their work. One resident stated she hadn’t painted since she was in primary school. It’s great to see them loving their artwork.” 
Corporate volunteers supported other festivities including SAP at Wexford Way, Tanium at The Altenheim, Starbucks at Hana Gardens, as well as a trifecta of volunteer events hosted by Workday volunteers at Wexford Way, Valor Crossing and Wicklow Square throughout the month of December.
 
Many volunteers grow to have a deeper understanding of the need for affordable housing after their service with Eden. They hear stories from residents and learn how a stable home improves the lives of so many people. 
 
As one volunteer said, “This community is nothing like the image I had of what affordable housing looks like. I would want my grandmother to live here.”
 
Are you interested in volunteering with Eden? As the holidays begin to wrap up, consider giving back by volunteering with our senior properties as a tech tutor, Senior Buddy, or by facilitating an exercise class. 
 
Whatever your interests, skills or schedule allows, Eden Housing has a volunteer opportunity that may be perfect for you. 2020 could be the year that you make a difference in the lives of Eden’s residents!
