Louisville Community Financial Empowerment Network

The Louisville Community Financial Empowerment Network (LCFEN) is a newly formed network of collaborative agencies, organizations and businesses committed to driving innovation in the asset-building arena and improving the ability and confidence of the entire Louisville community to improve financial capability and resilience.

Our Vision: All people have greater access to the resources, services and support they need to build financial stability and resilience.

14 founding members

Serving more than 61,341 Louisville residents each year

One unifying mission: To drive innovation in the asset-building arena and improve the ability and confidence of Louisville residents to achieve their financial goals while expanding existing opportunities to be inclusive and accessible to all through a network of collaborative organizations.

About the Network

We believe:

  • All people deserve the opportunity to achieve life goals.
  • Financial capability is a fundamental part of independent living.
  • Every person has the right to food, shelter and safety.
  • Empowered people create and expand businesses, raise healthy families, support their community and contribute to the tax base so critical to a sustainable city.

By working together we can create, test, and promote promising strategies while expanding existing opportunities to be inclusive and accessible to all.

We aspire to be the model for a statewide strategy for building a community of practice that brings financial empowerment into every conversation, influencing long-term sustainability via savings, credit building and financial goal-setting and providing tools that cannot be taken away while instilling confidence in those that think they can’t.

Membership in the Network

The purpose of the LCFEN Member Designation process is to identify, recognize and celebrate a strong, inclusive network of entities that, together provides all residents an array of opportunities to access resources, education, and support along their individual paths toward greater financial stability and thus improving the financial health of the larger community.  Currently, membership into the network is by-invitation only.

Membership in the network provides agencies with a clearinghouse for best practices and a platform for learning, sharing, peer support and new partnership opportunities.  Along with building our members’ capacity to serve, the network utilizes collective efforts to improve the stability and financial well-being of those we serve, the neighborhoods where we live, and our community at-large.

Our members benefit from establishing new connections and partnerships; identifying and accessing customized technical assistance, training and support; public recognition as an agency focused on improving the financial well-being of Louisville residents; and an opportunity to contribute to a community-wide financial empowerment integration strategy - information that may be of interest to future funders and supporters.
