What We Do

Common Wealth Charlotte (CWC) equips economically-vulnerable wage earners with increased financial capability, so they can attain financial stability and decrease reliance on charitable assistance. This is achieved through a trauma-informed approach including education, personalized counseling, access to banking, and 0%-interest loans (up to $1,000).

Interesting Info
  • An estimated 200,000 hourly-wage earners in Mecklenburg County bring home approximately $2,900 monthly take-home pay.
  • CWC clients have seen an 86 average credit score increase once their 0%-interest loans are paid-in-full.
  • In Mecklenburg County, 120,000 housing units are not within 1/2-mile of a bank or credit union.
