We Are Aeon

Committed to helping people create a stable home

Aeon is an award-winning, responsive nonprofit affordable housing developer. We have built or renovated 4,192 affordable apartments and townhomes in the Twin Cities area, which provide home to nearly 8,500 people each year — including individuals and families with low to moderate incomes and formerly homeless individuals.

Aeon does not just build affordable homes — our organization is committed to helping people create a stable home where they feel safe and connected to the community around them.

Connecting Residents to the Community

Through a respectful, caring culture, Aeon connects residents to each other, to the community, and to stabilizing resources such as job training and after-school programs. These connections are powerful and transformational. As an Aeon resident who was formerly homeless said, “For the first time in my life, I feel like I’m part of something bigger than myself.”

Meeting a Critical Need, Changing lives

Since 1986, Aeon has created affordable apartment homes, invested millions of dollars in undercapitalized neighborhoods, and transformed blighted areas into vibrant places to live and work. Affordable apartment homes are especially critical for households with very low incomes (at or below 30% Area Median Income) who are not candidates for home ownership and have few rental options. Aeon’s mission is to meet this critical need while strengthening lives and connecting communities. Our inspiration to create long-term community assets is illustrated in the name Aeon, which is Latin for “forever.”
