What We Do
Prosperity Works advocates across public and private sectors to change attitudes, behaviors and policies that reinforce systemic poverty. We also connect New Mexicans to opportunities, knowledge and relationships to achieve economic prosperity.
How We Do It
We believe that direct, high-impact investments in hard-working, committed individuals and families are the best investment you can make. Our asset-building strategies allow families to build financial security and sound futures by saving for resources like homes, small businesses and education.
Why We Do It
Life without assets is challenging and unpredictable. Life with assets stabilizes families, increases agency, and strengthens communities. Prosperity for all New Mexicans cannot flourish without fundamental changes to systems, attitudes and behaviors.
Prosperity Works is a 501(c)(3) organization.
