The company, which bridges the gap between health and housing, will embed its team members on-site at all 11 of Jubilee’s affordable housing communities as well as 11 Enterprise communities across Washington, D.C.

“Residents are at the heart of our work at Enterprise and this collaboration with Ounce of Care enables us to offer crucial programs that make a positive impact on the residents of our communities,” said Christine Madigan, interim president of Enterprise Community Development. “We are pleased to have Ounce's community health team on-site at these communities to help connect our residents with essential healthcare services and programs that contribute to better health outcomes, and help deliver care, community and connections.”

Ounce connects residents to health and social services, including helping residents enroll in Medicaid or other insurance, navigate the health care system, and connect to other programs.

"Enterprise is an organization committed to resident well-being and upward mobility, making them a perfect partner for Ounce,” said Rachel Munsie, co-founder and CEO of Ounce. “This collaboration marks a significant milestone for Ounce, enabling us to extend our reach in the D.C. area and continue serving residents of affordable housing.”

The firm, which recently raised $5.2 million in seed funding, serves more than 30 properties and 6,500 residents across D.C. Ounce has been working largely with nonprofits but is looking to partner with others and expand its footprint.

“Having their community health team on-site provides an opportunity for our residents to have enhanced access to much needed supports for health insurance needs, health care options, health-related workshops, and other community resource connections,” said Miya Morris, director of resident services of Jubilee Housing.
