Enterprise is a national nonprofit on a mission to make home and community places of pride, power and belonging for all. To make that possible, we operate the only organization designed to address America’s affordable housing crisis from every angle: we develop and deploy programs and support community organizations on the ground; we advocate for nonpartisan policy at every level of government; we invest capital to build and preserve rental homes people can afford; and we own, operate and provide resident services for affordable communities. All so that people not only make rent, they build futures. With this end-to-end approach, 40 years of experience and thousands of local partners, Enterprise has built and preserved 662,000 affordable homes, invested $53 billion in communities and changed millions of lives.
Over the last four years, Enterprise’s Detroit Market team has been working with local government agencies, affordable housing developers, community development organizations, and other partners to increase access to opportunity through system improvements and transformational changes to policy, programs, and investment strategies. Our major initiatives promote housing stability through the preservation and production of affordable housing and tenant protections, increased capacity and organizational sustainability for community development organizations (CDOs), as well as cross-sector initiatives to advance economic mobility and sustainability.
Enterprise recognizes diversity as a driving force that allows us to further our goal of building stronger communities, ending housing insecurity, and lifting individuals out of poverty. We believe an inclusive environment broadens our perspective, enabling us to better support the communities we serve, and makes for a richer, more dynamic place to work every day.
The Detroit Fellow is a two-year position to advance Enterprise’s aim to improve Detroit’s neighborhoods and achieve equitable revitalization. The Fellow’s principal focus will be managing Enterprise’s Community Development Organization Fund (CDO Fund,) although the Fellow will be brought into other projects as needed.
Through management of the CDO fund, the Detroit Fellow will help provide local nonprofits with financial resources and technical assistance to grow organizational sustainability and enhance their efforts to advance equitable community revitalization. Operating support will enable CDOs to fund critical investments in organizational systems, staff training and leadership development, as well as obtain customized technical assistance. Enterprise’s support of CDOs will also enable us to further collaborate with local organizations, fostering community improvement from the ground up, multiplying the impact of local efforts, targeting community needs, and helping CDOs meet their goals and scaling their solutions. This role requires working closely with internal colleagues, including Detroit Team and Enterprise national staff, as well as with external partners including a funder collaborative and CDO grantees.
The position reports to the Detroit Senior Program Director. The successful candidate will be a highly motivated, enthusiastic, effective team player eager to support the Enterprise team and external partners. This role is dynamic and changing and different responsibilities are emphasized depending on the status of various projects. Team spirit is critical for the success of this position, as this is a small and nimble office.Job Responsibilities
