WEST VIRGINIA ALLIANCE FOR SUSTAINABLE FAMILIES
WHAT IS WVASF?
The WV Alliance for Sustainable Families (WVASF) serves as an important voice for West Virginia's working families. The WVASF coordinates research, education, advocacy, and coalition building on issues related to asset building and economic stability. The WVASF also leads Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) awareness throughout the state. The Mission of the WVASF is to increase access to asset building opportunities and improve economic security for low to moderate-income West Virginia families.
The 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 organization has served as an important voice for West Virginia’s low-income children and families by identifying and impacting a variety of issues affecting 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.
