Enterprise Home Ownership Partners

Through the Enterprise Home Ownership Partners (EHOP) program, many hard-working, low-income families in Los Angeles realized the dream of owning a home. In 2013, EHOP sold its final home, capping off a program that created decent, affordable homes and provided access to prudent financal tools.

Using resources from the public and private sectors, the program invested more than $100 million in LA neighborhoods and built a stable base of more than 1,500 homeowners living in fully renovated homes. EHOP substantially rehabilitated homes by making them energy efficient and larger to accommodate families and partnered with banks to create affordable loan products. As a result, more than 500 households in one of the country’s costliest markets became homeowners.

EHOP is a supporting organization of Enterprise Community Partners, a national nonprofit working with partners to rebuild communities by providing affordable housing with access to jobs, schools, health care and child care.
