Affordable housing yields Yalies-to-be 

(Hayward: July 11, 2007)  Thanks in part to support from their affordable housing provider, two Hayward brothers are leaving town to go to school…at Yale. 

Eden Housing, nonprofit developers and managers of high-quality, well-managed, service-enhanced affordable housing communities throughout Northern California have announced that two recipients of the agency's Howard T. Collins Memorial Scholarship will attend Yale University in New Haven, CT this fall. 

Brothers Thanh Kien Huynh and Lap Huynh, residents of the Harris Court apartments in Hayward and recent graduates of Tennyson High School, will use funds from Eden's scholarships to help defray costs at the prestigious Ivy League school. 


A total of thirteen young men and women will receive scholarship awards at a presentation ceremony scheduled for Wednesday, August 8th at 6:00 p.m. at Eden Housing's Sara Conner Court apartments, 32540 Pulaski Drive (at Mission Blvd.) in Hayward. 


About the scholarships


The Howard T. Collins Memorial Scholarship program is named in honor of a former member of Eden Housing's Board of Directors.  Mr. Collins, a tireless volunteer not just for Eden Housing but for all people in need, was a man with a passion for justice, and the Collins Scholarships are designed to promote and support educational and economic advancement among Eden Housing's lower-income residents. This year, 13 young men and women received support from the Collins Scholarship Program in amounts ranging from $750 to $3,000.
