"We must do it all – decent housing in decent neighborhoods for everyone.” The words of Enterprise
founder Jim Rouse continue to inspire us.
That’s why together we continue to build and preserve affordable homes in urban and rural neighborhoods, connect them to good schools, jobs, transit and health care, and rejuvenate communities.
This multi-faceted approach is how we will end housing insecurity in the United States.
Here are a few recent examples of how we're making progress across the country by creating affordable homes and connections to opportunity:
- Austin, Texas: 250 New Affordable Homes to be Built
- Bronx, N.Y.: Three Buildings, 106 Affordable Homes to be Preserved
- Cincinnati: Community Gets a Lift from 20-Acre, Mixed-Use Development
- Cleveland: New Development Provides Homes to Chronically Homeless Individuals
- Denver: New and Existing Homes Connected to Transit
- Hampton, Va.: 252 Homes to be Preserved
- Neah Bay, Wash.: New Supportive Housing to Benefit Native Americans
- Newark, N.J.: New Charter School to be Built
- San Francisco: Residents Avoid Displacement through Grant Help
- Shelburne, Vt.: New Neighborhood Offers Opportunity to Mixed-Income, Mixed-Generation Families
- Williston, N.D.: Former School Becomes Affordable Homes for Seniors
Each accomplishment above mirrors the strength of our shared resolve to end housing insecurity.
