History & Mission
As the first Supportive Living Facility in the country serving people with disabilities, Eden Supportive Living is not about real estate, it’s about people being given a chance to live.
Founded in 2003 on the principal of transforming lives through higher living standards, we have developed the industry’s youngest and best-designed health care properties, delivering the next generation of exemplary care and offering our residents the utmost quality of life. We don’t believe housing for people with disabilities should feel stale. We believe care should be provided in a spirit of hospitality and love. This mission inspires us and we hope it inspires you.
Eden and its affiliates have been serving the disabled community since 1997 as a principal advocate for disability rights and constantly challenging the status quo. Around Eden, we are constantly asking "why not?" By doing so, we have an opportunity to vertically transform lives each and every day.
We pioneered managed care for resident’s scheduled and unscheduled needs, as well as, personal assistance in advancing people’s development on a daily basis and we will continue doing so by encouraging people to play an active role in their physical and mental wellness.
Right now, we’re transforming the way health care is experienced by people living with disabilities. Only time will tell what’s next, but one thing is for sure; when tomorrow comes, we’ll be ready. We’ll be ready to think critically, cast visions and execute strategies that transform lives.
Our mission, therefore, is to improve the quality of our residents’ lives while helping them overcome any boundaries that need overcoming. Working under the Supportive Living Program, we can create an environment where residents can grow. A place we can all be proud to call home.
At Eden, our name is our motto: EDEN “Everyone Deserves Equal Nobility” (“E.D.E.N.”) – Everyone deserves to live the fullest life possible.
