Coalition Building

We are working to raise awareness of the Asset Building Coalition, build relationships, and expand our Coalition by engaging more people in local asset-building.

We are building a local movement for systems change so that everyone in Forsyth County can experience financial stability.


The Coalition Building committee (formerly Marketing and Communications) works with current and prospective members to grow the Coaltion and keep members actively engaged in our work.

We also share stories of our mission, purpose, and work so that the local community is aware of and understands the purpose and direction of the Coalition.


Our vision statement is coming soon!

The Coalition Building Committee of the ABC works to sustain and expand Coalition membership and to raise awareness about the ABC and our work in the local community.
