Who We Are
Financial Stability is the most recent coalition to evolve from the Agenda For Change under the Income Building Block. The Financial Stability Coalition works with a variety of professionals in the community with the goal that community members learn skills to become financially independent.
Created in April 2016, the coalition is in the beginning phase of development, working on identifying what key initiatives need to be addressed and what actions should be set forth for the community to learn skills to become financially independent. We invite you to join us.
