Pauline Weaver, president of the Center for Civic Education Board of Directors, has been honored by Eden Housing with the opening of the new Pauline Weaver Senior Apartments in Fremont, California. The ninety-unit complex was developed for low-income seniors in the area. On May 17, government officials and development team members joined together to commemorate the completion of the project.
“It is a wonderful thank you for doing something that I love. It is an incredible honor—most people never get recognized until their memorial service, and they can’t hear it! I am truly humbled and grateful,” said Weaver.
Weaver has long been an advocate in her community for affordable housing in California, especially in the city of Fremont where she has been a longtime resident. She was a former member and chair of both the Fremont Planning Commission and the Fremont Sister City Commission, in addition to serving as co-president of the League of Women Voters of Fremont-Newark-Union City. Furthermore, she has served on the Eden Housing Board of Directors since 1988 and as an assistant public defender in Alameda County.
Weaver had the honor of cutting a red ribbon during a ceremony in front of the new apartments. The celebration was attended by Cheryl Cook-Kallio, who also serves on the Center’s Board of Directors and as the California We the People state coordinator.
