By providing and supporting a comprehensive array of services and advocacy for the children, youth and families of Hayward, Eden Youth and Family Center enhances the economic, social, educational, and healthy well-being of the community.


Eden Youth and Family Center, originally named Eden Youth Center, began providing services in 1977.  It was originally located at the Kimball Elementary School site in North Hayward.  In 1979,  the center moved to its current location in South Hayward, 680 W. Tennyson Road, former Tennyson Elementary School site, an area of high family density and predominately low-income families.  The agency changed its name to Eden Youth and Family Center in 1998 to reflect its commitment to serving children, youth and their families.
