On Thursday, March 16, 2017, with the help and partnership of Robbinsville Township, Mercer County HOME Investment Partnership Program, Mercer County Board of Freeholders and the Department of Human Services Division of Developmental Disabilities, Eden Autism held a ribbon cutting ceremony to celebrate the opening of Vahlsing, our latest group home in Robbinsville Township. The Development of this new home was made possible by partnering with Mercer County HOME Investment Partnerships Program, which contributed $240K towards the acquisition of this home along with the Division of Developmental Disabilities which contributed $120,000. This is the second project developed with the HOME program. Previously, HOME contributed $240K to the Blue Devil Group Home. Robbinsville Township also contributed $100K towards this home. The Township has also recently contributed $58K towards renovations of one of our existing Robbinsville group homes, Sobolevitch House.

With this new home, Eden now operates 25 community residences, consisting of 15 group homes and 10 supported apartments throughout the Central Jersey region, housing 96 adults. In Robbinsville alone, Eden now operates six homes within the township.

Vahlsing, a charming 2,560 square foot home sits on a beautiful .69 acre lot. The house, which was purchased last year and underwent some minor renovations over the last six months, welcomed its new residents in December and January.
