Living at Eden Village Springfield
A home is a basic necessity, essential to a humans’ well-being and only once this need is met, is it possible to address other needs. The key to recovery is building relationships with the community. This could not be accomplished without the help of volunteers and service providers who partner with Eden Village to foster community and invest in the lives of our residents. For these individuals this is a long process which will require continued dedication by the community.
