Affordable Housing For Those Experiencing and At Risk of Homelessness

Cedar Community Apartments is one of Abode Services’ supportive housing apartment buildings in Alameda County. The site is at 39802 Cedar Blvd in the city of Newark, CA.

Building and Managing Communities

Abode creates communities that provide stable quality housing with a strong sense of place, designed to address homelessness through permanent supportive housing. Abode works with its sister entities, Allied Housing and Housing for Independent People, to build and manage new sites and to renovate and convert existing housing.
