The WV Alliance for Sustainable Families (WVASF) was organized in December 1996 under the name of the West Virginia Welfare Reform Coalition. It was created to initiate action in the areas of research, education, advocacy, and coalition building to ensure that West Virginia’s citizens, communities and organizations successfully implement welfare reform. The Alliance has served as an important voice for West Virginia’s low-income children and families by identifying and acting upon a variety of issues impacting families who are primarily receiving public benefits. Current areas of focus for the organization are asset development, financial literacy and economic sustainability for working families.
For over 15 years WVASF has been an important voice for West Virginia’s working families. The WVASF conducts research, education, advocacy, and coalition-building on issues related to asset building and economic stability.
The WVASF, in partnership with the West Virginia Center on Budget and Policy (WVCBP) is leading the charge for establishing an SEITC in West Virginia. A West Virginia SEITC would boost the incomes of more than 145,000 working WV families. The WVASF is currently working to develop a coalition around this issue to educate citizens and legislators and advocate legislative change.
