Inside the planned community that James Rouse built is an organization he founded to do what most people would consider impossible. Rouse, developer of Columbia, wanted to put an end to poverty — within a single generation — by expanding affordable housing and community development nationwide. Twenty-eight years later, the poverty rate is rising rather than falling. But Rouse's nonprofit Enterprise Community Partners has ballooned into one of the nation's largest financiers of apartments and homes that low- and moderate-income people can afford.

Thirty years ago, Enterprise Community Partners began with three women, one man and a dream. The women were members of a local church, and the man was Jim Rouse, the real estate developer responsible for Columbia. Together, they had a dream that everyone should have the opportunity to live in an affordable home. “The company was founded as a social enterprise that uses public and private partnership to achieve the goal that everyone has an affordable home in a diverse, thriving community,” says Terri Ludwig, president and CEO of Enterprise, which is based in Columbia.

Of the many complex issues involved in converting downtown Columbia into an urban center, none has provoked greater passion than the need to provide housing for low- and moderate-income families. Unlike in some neighborhoods, one obstacle appears to have largely been overcome: public resistance. That is not surprising, because the spirit of the planned community has been economic and racial diversity. But the dynamics that permitted the new town to rise from farmland four decades ago to embrace all have changed substantially, creating a more daunting task in ensuring that Columbia is not a bastion only for the affluent.

Enterprise Community Partners, a Columbia-based organization that helps people around the country find affordable housing, is itself getting a new home but staying in Columbia. After considering numerous locations, the nonprofit founded by James and Patricia Rouse plans to move its headquarters next year to the Columbia building once occupied by the Ryland Group, less than a mile from its current location. Before starting Enterprise, James Rouse headed the company that launched the development of Columbia 50 years ago. "The location is important to us because of its relationship with Mr. and Mrs. Rouse, and Enterprise was founded here," said Charles Werhane, president and chief executive of Enterprise Community Investment, an affiliate of Enterprise Community Partners that also will move to the former Ryland building.
