For 35 years, Eden I&R has been successfully fulfilling its mission of “linking people and resources” by consistently and creatively responding to the community’s changing needs. The agency’s services are the results of collaborations that depend on the work of hundreds of community-based organizations. Because no other centralized source for health, housing, and human services information exists anywhere else in Alameda County, Eden I&R has become a critical resource for thousands of at-risk individuals, such as youth, non-English speakers, the economically disadvantaged, people living with HIV/AIDS, domestic violence survivors, the elderly, disabled, the homeless, and human service agencies seeking services or housing for their clients.
Current programs include:
- 2-1-1 Alameda County Phone Line
- Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) phone line
- AIDS Housing and Information Project (AHIP)
- Roving Housing Resource Programs (including the Housing Academy)
- After-Hours Emergency Phone Services for Alameda County’s Child and Adult Protective Services, Foster Care Placement Line, and the Public Guardian’s Office
- Disaster Recovery Services
- Housing Database with over 74,500 housing units throughout Alameda County, including subsidized housing suited to those with special needs
- Social Services Database with over 2,600 health and human service programs
- Big Blue Book: The Directory of Human Services for Alameda County, an annual printed directory of health and human services, and the directory online at www.alamedaco.info
Eden I&R, Inc., was incorporated as a non-profit 501(c)(3) agency in January 1976 in response to a community need for a service that would assist people in obtaining information about, as well as gaining access to, community resources. Our skilled information management and referral specialists provide a critical information bridge between individuals in need and human service agencies.
