Capital Area Asset Builders
Capital Area Asset Builders (www.caab.org) empowers low- and moderate-income families to take control of their finances, increase their savings and build wealth for a better future. Through Individual Development Accounts, CAAB provides $3 for every $1 each family saves. Once the participant saves up to $1,000, the money can be used toward post-secondary education, starting or enhancing a small business, or providing a down payment on a first home.
