The Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Asset Building Coalition (ABC) is a voluntary organization partnership of more than 30 local organizations, agencies, businesses and individuals. Its members are committed to helping people achieve financial stability by building personal assets (savings, real property).

Two local non-profits lead the Coalition:  Experiment in Self Reliance and Financial Pathways of the Piedmont, each with a long history of providing client services related to financial stability and poverty.
