TEDc celebrates 40 years of helping solve the
Affordable housing crisis by building strong communities
TEDc celebrated 40 years of building strong communities with the launch of two of its newest communities in Miami’s Liberty City on Nov 3, 2022. Hosted by NBC 6 News Co-Anchor Jawan Strader, the event was attended by government officials and business and community leaders.
Carol Gardner, president of the woman and minority-led TEDc, remarked:
“We are honored to celebrate 40 years of being a member of this community. We have struggled together, and we have succeeded together. And working together, we are building more housing that improves the quality of life for more people and fuels more investment to benefit the entire community. TEDc is privileged to work with you to help solve the affordable housing crisis. Edison Towers and Edison Place are reminders of what we can and will accomplish together.”

Attendees also celebrated a $400,000 appropriation and award from the State of Florida funding TEDc’s new social services initiative to provide financial training, GED certification, and vocational education to its communities’ residents. As part of its new Non-Traditional Initiatives, TEDc also announced its program to work directly with faith-based leadership, colleges and universities, and other institutions to develop underutilized land to provide affordable housing.
Gardner closed the celebration with a call to action, ” Many say that the affordable housing crisis can’t be fixed. Some say that TEDc has big dreams. What we have is a solution, and it’s simple… We will work with our partners to deliver the highest and best housing and services to the people who need it most and to the communities they call home.”
Let’s build a lasting legacy together.
