Rouse is honored by Housing Council

Patricia "Patty" Rouse, wife of the late James Rouse, was selected last week by the National Housing Council as its 1998 Housing Person of the Year.

She was honored at a Washington dinner for her lifelong commitment and leadership in the fields of affordable housing and community development. In 1982, Mrs. Rouse, with her husband, started the Enterprise Foundation, whose mission is to provide opportunities for low-income people to find affordable housing. Since then, the foundation has worked with 940 nonprofit organizations in 280 locations across the country, and has built or renovated 86,000 homes.

Past recipients of the award include David O. Maxwell, chairman of the board of Fannie Mae, and Cushing N. Dolbeare, founder of the National Low Income Housing Coalition.
