May 17, 2016

Eva Longoria may be best known for playing a housewife, but in real life, she’s a philanthropist—and a shrewd businesswoman.

The Desperate Housewives actress is investing in affordable housing through a new partnership with social impact investment firm Turner Impact Capital, according to a company statement released on Monday.

Longoria will act as both an investor in and an ambassador for Turner’s Multifamily Impact Fund, which “seeks to acquire, improve, and preserve critically-needed workforce rental housing throughout the country,” according to the company’s website.
