Five reasons to support Aeon
|Here are five compelling reasons why a donation to Aeon is a smart and meaningful charitable investment.Everyone deserves a place to call home.
Living in a safe and stable “home” is a basic human need. Now, more than ever, people need homes they can afford. Aeon’s vision is that every person has a home and is interconnected within community.
We are experts in providing quality, affordable apartments for low and moderate income households.
For more than 25 years, Aeon has partnered with communities to ensure affordable housing options for Minnesota’s most vulnerable individuals and families. Currently, Aeon provides more than 2,000 apartment homes and serves more than 3,500 individuals and families, including formerly homeless youth and adults, and individuals and families earning very low- and low incomes.
We are working to help prevent and end long-term homelessness.
Aeon designates 25 percent of its apartment homes for formerly homeless individuals. We currently provide homes and supportive services to nearly 500 formerly homeless adults and youth. With case management services delivered by contracted providers and other on-site support, we help them retain their housing, achieve self-sufficiency, and become active members in their communities.
We create and sustain thriving community assets that last for generations.
We look at the big picture. We do more than build properties – we create community and human assets. We balance quality and cost-effectiveness with community needs, from providing basic stability to environment sustainability. We reduce homelessness, revitalize aging and dilapidating structures, improve community safety, create jobs, and enable residents to achieve stability and success.
We are trusted stewards of funds and charitable gifts.
We know our donors have strong expectations of our work; so do we! Having submitted information for review by the Charities Review Council, we meet the accountability standards for charities’ performance, specifically in four critical areas: public disclosure, governance, financial activity, and fundraising.
For these and other reasons, please donate to Aeon and ensure everybody has a place to call home.
