Creating Social Impact Through Better Living Spaces

Enhabit is a mission-driven non-profit that convenes community members, commissions targeted projects, and invest in partners to advance better living spaces. Our aim is to help create strong, thriving, and equitable communities with a lower environmental footprint. Enhabit has transitioned day-to-day program services to two non-profits: Community Energy Project (CEP) for Home Energy Scoring and Home Solutions advisory services, and Verde to accelerate development of affordable accessory dwelling unit (ADU) programs.

Everything We Do Advances Our mission

25,000 Homeowners Helped Since 2009

ENERGY

We’ve help communities minimize wasted energy and costs. 10 high-performing homes means another 3 houses can be powered from the savings gained.

ECONOMY

We’ve connected homeowners to financing options that help fuel the economy. 1000+  workers earned paychecks working on an Enhabit project.

HOUSING

We supported the implementation of an innovative accessory dwelling unit (ADU) program to house families experiencing homelessness in Multnomah County, providing a model for future programs.

EQUITY

Enhabit provided jobs and training for women, people of color and veterans, which in turn promoted equity and increased access to opportunity. 55% of hours worked were by women and people of color.
