Putting Ideas into Action

Enterprise works with partners across the United States to create affordable housing that’s connected to opportunity in thriving communities. Together, we identify, pilot and scale solutions designed to end housing insecurity for low-income people.

Our approach is innovative and comprehensive. We know that a healthy and stable home must be affordable -- as well as located in a community connected to good schools, jobs, transit and health care.
