WealthWorks is an evolving community of practice that is eploring, implementing and testing innovative regional wealth-building economic development strategies. The community first came together with the support of the Ford Foundation through its Expanding Livelihood Opportunities for Poor Households Initiative. Today, the community is self organizing and a volunteer project of its hub organizations and national partners. Explore the different ways to connect with the WealthWorks community:

WealthWorks Hubs

A group of organizations across the United States are coming together to form a network of regional hubs committed to broadly sharing their on-the-ground experience with the WealthWorks approach and principles. Hubs provide a way for interested practitioners to learn more about and connect with organizations implementing WealthWorks on the ground, and to support work at the state, regional and local levels.
