The WVASF has developed a coalition of partners to address asset poverty and create greater asset building opportunities for low-wealth individuals and families. The goal of the coalition is to provide education and awareness regarding asset poverty in West Virginia, aid in the creation and delivery of programs and services that help build assets for low-wealth populations, and advocate for legislative changes to break down the current barriers to asset building.
