Aeon’s mission is to create and sustain quality affordable homes that strengthen lives and communities. Managing 36 properties, Aeon serves more than 4,000 individuals. In the process, innovative solutions are developed to accommodate residents’ ways of life. An example that does not impact cost is the open window between a cooking and social area. A veiled Muslim woman can hang a curtain to separate herself from male visitors so she can cook unveiled. When only family members are present, she can keep the window open for more interaction.
