Eden Autism is proud to announce the opening of three additional residences located in the heart of Robbinsville Township.
In partnership with Project Freedom — a nonprofit organization that develops affordable housing designed for people with disabilities and their families — Eden recently opened three apartments in Freedom Village at Town Center South.
“The opening of our new Robbinsville residences is the direct result of collaboration between multiple organizations coming together to support independent living for individuals with autism,” said Eden Autism President & CEO Michael Decker. “We are grateful for the ongoing support from Robbinsville to enable individuals with autism to live fulfilling, engaging lives in their community.”
“Project Freedom’s mission is to build housing for people with disabilities so they can live independently with support in their communities,” said Tracee Battis, Project Freedom Executive Director. “I can’t think of a better example of meeting our mission than to have Eden Autism and their awesome participants be a part of our Town Center South community.”
The brand-new apartment complex is located in Robbinsville’s Town Center South, a walkable community featuring restaurants, shops, and medical offices. The location of the apartment complex was a key factor in Eden’s decision to open the residences.
“Our participants’ overall quality of life is improved when they are immersed in their community,” said Gia Gore, Eden Autism Director of Real Estate. “The proximity to the Town Center enables them to access activities within walking distance and enhances their lives.”
Six individuals will now call the new apartments home, with two individuals that Eden supports living in each an apartment. Two apartments have already opened, and individuals will be moving into the third apartment later this month.
The men have adjusted well in their new home, settling into their new routines and enjoying plenty of activities with their roommate and direct support staff.
With the opening of these apartments, Eden now has 11 residences in Robbinsville, building upon a longstanding relationship with the Township. Eden’s first Robbinsville residence opened three decades ago, and the Township has been a champion for individuals with autism ever since.
“Robbinsville Township has embraced us and welcomed us into their community. We couldn’t ask for a better partner” said Gore.
