The Desperate Housewives actress is teaming up with real estate investor Bobby Turner to provide better housing for workers in need.

Eva Longoria has long been a social activist and a philanthropist. Best known for her role as Gabrielle Solis on the ABC television show Desperate Housewives, the actress, who was raised in Texas by ninth-generation Mexican-American parents, started her own charitable foundation in 2012. The Eva Longoria Foundation aims to help “Latinas build better futures for themselves and their families through education and entrepreneurship.”

Now Longoria, who has a women’s apparel line coming out this fall, is blending her entrepreneurial talents and her philanthropic interests by teaming up with real estate executive Bobby Turner to launch a new Turner Impact Capital fund devoted to housing for moderate-income workers.
