We have a mission--to help the low-income wage-earners of Charlotte and Mecklenburg County move to new, higher levels of financial stability. We're a movement, out to prove the traditional giveaway methods of financial assistance can be complemented by a transactional relationship that rewards hard work, repayment of small loans and building assets, and gives people a firmer foothold. Every donation helps us achieve our mission.
