Alameda County Community Asset Network (AC CAN)

Who We Are

Founded and staffed by Urban Strategies Council since 2007, Alameda County Community Asset Network (AC CAN) is a working group of service providers, credit unions and banks, community based organizations, public agencies, and base-building organizations that work in partnership to increase the income and assets of people in Alameda County.

Our Philosophy

We believe that: 

• People should be met where they are in their income and asset development efforts and that services and products should be appropriate to client’s needs

• Poverty is a structural issue that has to be addressed at the policy and systems level as a complement to individual client service provision

• Working together in partnership, we will have a larger impact

Our Mission

AC CAN’s mission is to build local capacity to create economic equity in Alameda County by working collectively with our members to develop innovative income and asset-building strategies, services, and policies.

Our Approach

AC CAN works to give its members the tools, capacity, and connections needed to better support Alameda County residents in preserving and building income and assets, through:

• Needed tools and resources in the field

• Technical assistance and trainings

• Referrals and resource connection among partners

• Breaking down silos across disciplines and promoting interdisciplinary asset building strategies
