Our Partners

Common Wealth Charlotte serves as the exclusive financial education/asset-building collaborative partner for more than 30 human service agencies and 3 strategic employers. Our partners include:



CWC provides multi-level financial education, re-banking and emergency loan services at no cost to these partners. Our education services are placed-based, with CWC staff conducting sessions at partner locations, giving clients ready access to all of its resources. In addition, CWC offers a number of "open" sessions throughout each month allowing non-aligned clients the ability to engage our resources.

Partners such as Goodwill Industries, Center for Community Transitions, Charlotte Family Housing and others screen individuals participating in training programs who are expected to become employed in the near-term and/or are going through job advancement programs. Common Wealth Charlotte provides these workforce development clients with complimentary, holistic trauma-informed financial education, including workshops and one-to-one sessions designed to empower clients and to foster trust.

In addition, CWC partners with Community Link at two of its VITA sites to supplement volunteer tax prep services with its financial capability services. CWC and Community Link plan to expand this partnership in 2018.
