We are the Alameda County Community Asset Network – AC CAN

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

We are a working group of service providers, credit unions and banks, community-based organizations, public agencies, and base building groups that work in partnership to increase the income and assets of low-to-moderate income Alameda County residents.

AC CAN’s Member Organizations are located across the Bay Area. Get in touch with those closest to you.
