Under her leadership, Eden’s real estate development team expanded the organization’s presence in San Diego and Southern California, as well as opening a new office in Sacramento. She’s currently charged with spearheading the organization’s strategic plan goal of adding 10,000 units within the next 10 years.

In addition to leading a robust pipeline of new development projects totaling over 4,000 homes, Osgood oversees Eden’s renovation efforts of its existing portfolio and assets acquired from other nonprofits. Despite a challenging funding environment, Osgood and her team have found innovative ways to reinvest in Eden’s portfolio, ensuring the preservation of affordable housing options for vulnerable communities. Osgood now oversees a growing department across the state, affirming Eden’s commitment to building and preserving affordable housing.

“Andrea’s promotion is a testament to her outstanding contributions and unwavering dedication to Eden’s mission,” said Linda Mandolini, President and CEO of Eden Housing. “Under her leadership, Eden has made significant strides in expanding our affordable housing offerings, allowing us to make a difference in even more communities in need. We are confident that Andrea will continue to drive our efforts forward, creating lasting impacts on the lives of individuals and families throughout California.”

Osgood’s professional achievements extend beyond her role at Eden. She is a sought-after speaker and panelist, and as Board Chair of the Housing Leadership Council of San Mateo County, she has been a steadfast advocate for affordable housing solutions. She also serves as a board member and Treasurer of SV@Home, a housing advocacy organization in Santa Clara County. Osgood earned her Bachelor of Arts (BA) with Honors from Pomona College and a Master of Arts in Urban Planning from the UCLA Graduate School of Public Policy and Social Research.
