The Asset Building Coalition of Kitsap helps Kitsap County residents achieve financial security. We partner with other local organizations with a shared mission to provide financial education and resources that financially strengthen members of the community.

The Coalition is modeled after Prosperity Now‘s, formerly known as the Corporation for Enterprise Development (CFED), Household Financial Security Framework adapted and summarized as shown below.

The Coalition is a collaborative partnership among businesses, nonprofits, government agencies, and other organizations from various backgrounds with a shared mission to improve the finances of individuals and families in Kitsap County. Members of the Coalition contribute to the mission in a variety of ways by leading financial education workshops, sharing resources, and helping to connect members of the community with programs and services that lead to financial security.
