Over two decades ago, legendary urban visionary Jim Rouse and his wife Patty founded Enterprise with the ambitious goal of making sure every American lives in a decent, affordable home.
Who Are We?
Enterprise is a leading provider of the development capital and expertise it takes to create decent, affordable homes and rebuild communities. For nearly 30 years, Enterprise has introduced neighborhood solutions through public-private partnerships with financial institutions, governments, community organizations and others that share our vision. Enterprise has raised and invested more than $11 billion in equity, grants and loans to help build or preserve more than 280,000 affordable rental and for-sale homes to create vital communities.
At Enterprise, we create opportunity for low- and moderate-income people through fit, affordable housing and diverse, thriving communities.
Central to our mission is Enterprise’s fundamental commitment to give people living in poverty an opportunity to move up and out. We believe that these opportunities are best provided in communities with a diverse mix of affordable and market housing options, access to jobs and social supports, and a strong commitment to the environment and civic participation.
