Winston Salem/Forsyth County Asset Building Coalition is the second local campaign in North Carolina for America Saves. America Saves is a campaign managed by the nonprofit Consumer Federation of America, motivates, encourages, and supports low- to moderate-income households to save money, reduce debt, and build wealth.
The research-based campaign uses the principles of behavioral economics and social marketing to change behavior. Non‐profit, government, and corporate groups participate in America Saves nationally and through local, regional, and statewide campaigns around the country. America Saves encourages individuals to take the America Saves pledge and organizations to promote savings year-round and during America Saves Week.
All across Winston-Salem/Forsyth County, people are proving that anyone can start small, and think big. Winston-Salem ABC Savers are setting financial goals, tracking their spending and taking control of their financial future. Staff and trained volunteers can show you how to develop a savings strategy and take one step at a time.

The Enclave (Pilot Program)
This initiative at The Enclave Apartments at Shattalon is ABC’s first hands-on work with local residents. This initiative is a high-touch hands-on approach in a single, working family neighborhood where we can help people reach and keep assets and improve financial stability. Examples of services offered; improve their debt, credit and savings behaviors.
The goal is not service delivery, but to demonstrate an effective place-based approach for building assets. If a meaningful percentage of Enclaves residents increase financial literacy and improve their debt, credit and savings situation, this will provide a model for others. A number of the member agencies are teaming up to work with Enclaves residents.
