About the Event
Hello COC Family!
We are so excited to bring Eboney Gardner to our virtual platform! She will discuss her journey to Homeownership!
Ebony Danielle Gardner is the Founder of Eden 4 Life LLC. Eden is in business to offer affordable housing and education to individuals interested in renting and owning a home. Her business was established in 2020, but was formed in her mind and dreams quite a few years before that. Ebony and her family grew up homeless, unbeknownst to her, as she always had a place to rest at night. Thankfully, because of a few dedicated family members including her uncle, auntie, and grandma, she and her family did not have to experience shelter-life in Philadelphia. Later, when she took a job at One Day at A Time, Inc Ebony learned that she and her family were homeless because they did not have a permanent residence and couch-surfed between relatives’ homes for over 12 years. With the sudden death of her father who did not have life insurance, left a gapping whole in the family finances causing her mother to lose the family home. Through the years after her father’s death, family members stepped in to help but resources were strained at each of the homes they resided in at the time.
Ebony’s unique experiences as a child wishing her family had their own home and didn’t have to move so much coupled with her career as a social worker at a non-profit dedicated to serving the suffering and homeless individuals inspired Ebony to become an entrepreneur. Eden is in its modest years, with big goals and potential to “buy the block” one house at a time. Rentals are one aspect of Eden 4 Life. Ebony is a certified Life insurance agent (as the tragedy associated with her father’s death left a lasting affect and trauma for her family and helping other families not to go through the same). However, the real magic for Eden is the long-term goal to inspire homeownership and share financial education/referral to services for individuals and families.
We will see you all on Zoom!
