Eden Housing Expands to Vacaville
VACAVILLE, CA – Hayward based nonprofit developer Eden Housing expands to the City of Vacaville. On January 1, 2020, Eden assumed the role as property manager of six properties in the City. 
Eden entered into a transition agreement with Vacaville Community Housing (VCH), longtime nonprofit affordable housing developer and owner in the City of Vacaville, in 2017. To ensure a smooth transition, Ed Forrest, former Vice President of VCH’s Board of Directors, joined Eden Housing’s Board in 2018. An Advisory Committee was formed during the transition, which includes Mr. Forrest, Eden’s Chief Financial Officer, VCH’s current President, as well as representatives from the Vacaville Neighborhood Boys & Girls Club and the City of Vacaville. 
“Eden and Vacaville Community Housing have long shared the important mission of providing lower-income Californians with an affordable place to call home,” said Linda Mandolini, President of Eden Housing. “Eden is well-equipped to assume management of the Vacaville properties, and we are pleased to work with the City and VCH to preserve these important affordable housing assets for the Vacaville community.”
Eden acquired four VCH properties in October 2018: Orchard Maples Apartments, The Willows Apartments, Highlands Apartments, Hillside Senior Apartments. Property management of the VCH communities remained unchanged through December 31, 2019 as a stabilizing constant for the residents during the transition. 
Eden assumed the role of co-general partner for two additional property developments in Vacaville: Meadows Holly and Rocky Hill Veterans.
As of January 1, 2020, Eden Housing manages eight properties in the City of Vacaville. These include the six acquired properties, as well as two additional properties: Lincoln Corner and Vacaville Meadows. 
Supportive services at Rocky Hill Veterans are provided by Eden Housing Resident Services, Caminar, and Community Action North-Bay in conjunction with the VA. Vacaville Neighborhood Boys & Girls Club provides after school programing at family properties. All properties have access to resources and referrals through Eden’s Information and Referral Hotline.
