With rain and storms pummeling the state of California, Enterprise is keeping our communities front of mind as we respond to and prepare for the ongoing impacts. We are saddened that we're already seeing devastating loss of life and significant damage in communities up and down the state. Our hearts go out to everyone who has been affected by the storms and we will do our part to help ensure a safe, swift recovery for the communities that have experienced significant damage.
We are sharing a few helpful resources:
- Our neighbors experiencing homelessness are especially vulnerable during these storms. Many counties have opened emergency shelters to help residents find refuge. Shelter offerings are available in the Bay Area, as well as in Fresno, Stockton, Modesto, and Sacramento. You can also find shelter options through the Red Cross. Additional resources include: LAHSA Interim Housing List, LA Winter Shelter Program, and LA County Guide to Shelter & Housing Assistance.
- Enterprise’s Community Powered Resilience website has resources for affordable housing owner operators and local governments including support in navigating floods and funding sources for States, Tribes, and local jurisdictions.
- For our partners managing affordable housing properties, our Business Continuity Toolkit can assist with emergency planning and response efforts. It includes specific tools to prepare buildings, manage operations, and support residents.
If your home has been affected, Fannie Mae offers disaster assistance counseling for homeowners and renters. You can learn more and request an appointment here.
We know from our work across the nation on resilience and recovery that a disaster like this begins with the storm, but it will not end once the rain and wind subside. We will have a long road ahead to recover, and our team stands at the ready to work with our partners to rebuild more equitable and resilient communities.
