Nearly 40 percent of households in our region live in liquid asset poverty, which means they do not have enough savings on hand to support oneself or their family at the poverty level for three months in the event of a job loss or other financial emergency.
Our Network works to increase the number of Sacramento region households that are asset-secure through innovative partnerships, programs and policies that reduce economic insecurity by building financial stability and success.

Our local Network is affiliated with the National Assets & Opportunity Network, a movement-oriented group of advocates, practitioners, policymakers and others working to expand the reach and deepen the impact of asset-based strategies.
The United Way California Capital Region houses the local network and provides administrative support. The leadership of all our individual, organizational and institutional partners in the public and private sectors is key to the success of the Network.
