Enterprise Celebrates its 200,000th Affordable Home at Gateways

Gateways Housing, which was recently honored by the Southern California Association of Non-Profit Housing as project of the year, is home to the 200,000th unit in the United States that has been constructed from the investments of Enterprise Community Investment. Since 1982, Enterprise has invested $7 billion towards affordable housing initiatives with the goal of finding a house for every person in the country. Their investment and energy have been essential components of many of Los Angeles' affordable housing programs. The 200,000th unit is the 29th at Gateways, and will be occupied by Patricia Van Lieu, a formerly homeless individual. The example that Enterprise and Gateways provide for the city and the world inspires hope and makes us believe that one day, every person in this nation will have a roof over their head.
