Eden Housing Named Non-Profit of the Year 

California Assembly Majority Leader Alberto Torrico Honors District Heroes

Fremont – As part of his annual State of the 20th Assembly District Address and Awards Ceremony, Assembly Majority Leader Alberto Torrico (D-Newark) will name Eden Housing the Non-Profit of the Year on December 11, 2008. The event will be held from 5:30 – 7:30pm at the Newark Hilton, 39900 Balentine Drive, in Newark and is open to the public.

Assemblyman Torrico commended Eden's forty-year history of providing affordable housing to low income, elderly, and disabled Californians and cited Eden's success in incorporating affiliated property management and resident services. He referenced Eden Housing's partnerships with twenty cities in six counties and the recent expansion of Eden's operations to new communities, including the San Joaquin Valley.

Eden Housing's Executive Director Linda Mandolini is proud to be accepting this award. "We're honored to be acknowledged for making outstanding contributions to the region," said Mandolini, "specifically for instilling hope and providing critical services to our communities."
