We’re empowering adults with the tools needed to ensure fiscal security.

WHY IT MATTERS

Individuals and families are facing financial obstacles that prevent a good quality of life. Without a steady income or sufficient savings, they are easily caught off guard by unexpected expenses, develop lingering credit concerns, fall prey to lenders and even face homelessness.

OUR WORK

Our goal is to empower people to become financially stable.

We’re fighting for people to find not just short term financial success but long lasting financial stability. That means connecting people with career skills and support to get and keep a better job. It means providing financial counseling to get out of debt and stay out of debt. It means covering the basics in emergency situations.

BECOME A TAX PREP VOLUNTEER

Our free income tax prep service helps individuals with low-to-moderate income file their taxes for free. The program helps participants avoid costly fees to have their taxes figured while also identifying tax credits, helping them keep more of their hard earned money.

Want to learn a new skill or do more volunteer work? Every year we recruit 200+ volunteers to assist with our free tax prep program. If filing someone’s taxes seems daunting to you, don’t fret! No experience is needed. We provide free training (classroom style or online) to become certified with the IRS. This volunteer opportunity is great for young professionals looking to build their resumes, retirees wanting a temporary volunteer gig and anyone with a passion to help others.
