Reviews for Aeon

Rating: 5 stars  

In 2003 we were introduced to AEON, an organization working to create and sustain affordable housing. This was a mission we both strongly supported. How could anyone hold a job, get a good education, and raise a family without home? We both agreed we must be a part of AEON. We have toured building projects, attended first shovel events, listened to residents' stories, and met the outstanding, dedicated staff. We have introduced AEON to many of our friends and business associates. Many have become active. Our only frustration is not being able to provide more funding. We believe AEON is strengthening individual lives and our community. It deserves your support.
