Where you live — your physical and social environment — affects every aspect of your life. Nationwide, people with low incomes suffer from chronic health problems at a much higher rate.

For both children and adults, the social determinants of health, including the quality, affordability, stability and location of your home, are seen not just as important factors but as the very source of health and well-being. At Enterprise, we recognize our role in laying the foundation for health and well-being.

Building on decades of cross-sector collaboration to create and promote healthy housing, Enterprise’s Health and Housing Initiative brings together the fields of public health and affordable housing for the creation and promotion of healthy housing nationwide.
