REMAINING ROOTED IN D.C. THANKS TO ENTERPRISE SUPPORT.

In 1996, after years of being neglected by an absentee landlord, the city condemned Meridan Manor, a deteriorating apartment building in the Columbia Heights neigborhood of Washington, D.C. LeRoy Washington and his neighbors were forced out of their homes. Even though the neighborhood battled against drugs and crime, Meridan Manor provided residents like LeRoy Washington with an affordable home in a familiar neighborhood.

Washington decided to fight for his home and community and he galvanized fellow residents.  They won a lawsuit against the landlord and took ownership of the building.  Enterprise, with several partners, rewarded his spirit and energy by providing financing for badly needed renovations at Meridan Manor. Washington was able to move back into a two-bedroom apartment with his daughter, where, until his death in 2005, he enjoyed his retirement years in the community he helped to revitalize.

Please consider making a contribution to this important effort. For every dollar you donate, we are able to leverage $160 of investment in safe, healthy and affordable housing.
