Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) Program Volunteer Opportunities
The VITA program provides free Income Tax Preparation for low-moderate income individuals and families. The program saves people hundreds of dollars on tax prep fees, and helps them access Earned Income Tax Credit and other benefits for which they are eligible to help stabilize themselves and their families.
We are currently seeking volunteers to assist our efforts to provide this valuable service.
