About the Rose Fellowship

 

The Enterprise Rose Architectural Fellowship partners early-career architectural designers with local community development organizations for a three-year term, where they facilitate an inclusive approach to development to create green, sustainable, and affordable communities. As an integral staff member of the organization, the fellow will focus on advancing the organization’s practices in community engagement, sustainability and design excellence. By becoming a fellow, you join a growing network of passionate and talented public interest designers who are continuously changing what is possible in community development. This year, fellowship opportunities are located with Quest Community Development Corporation in Atlanta, Epicenter in Green River, UT, Venice Community Housing in Los Angeles, CA, The Trust for Public Land based in St Paul, Minn., and the Fairmount Park Conservancy in Philadelphia.

 

About Venice Community Housing

 

Venice Community Housing’s mission is to reduce homelessness, maximize affordable housing, empower residents, provide social services, and advocate for public policy that protects and strengthens the economic, racial, and cultural diversity of Venice and other neighborhoods on the west side of Los Angeles. Founded by local community members in 1988, Venice Community Housing (VCH) has been developing lasting, neighborhood-based solutions for low-income families and individuals for 29 years. Venice has historically been one of the most economically, racially and culturally diverse neighborhoods in Los Angeles. More recently Venice’s rich social fabric has been shifted by economic forces eliminating affordable housing for Venice’s low-income and working class residents and other changes that threaten the diversity that has made Venice a global landmark. Since its founding Venice Community Housing has focused on providing neighborhood-based solutions to neighborhood problems, including implementing the housing first model and expanding permanent supportive housing, working to prevent displacement and drastic demographic changes caused by the loss of affordable housing, and providing accessible education and job training alternatives for youth.
