HERE’S HOW TO SUPPORT FAMILY BUDGETING

If you’re looking for a way to use your talents to serve families in need but haven’t found the right avenue, there is a crucial need for volunteers for the new tax season in various capacities.

The right volunteer would be passionate about helping families overcome hardship through financial education and enjoy numbers. If you don’t have an affinity for numbers, there is also a need for friendly faces to help guide GRACE clients through the process with one-on-one interaction.

Tax Preparers, Intake Specialists, and Interpreters help families with the process, and no volunteer is liable for errors. No prior qualification is required, and each volunteer receives ample training. In fact, a staff person will be present at all times.

To learn more about this unique support GRACE is part of, you’ve invited to attend a brief informational session on December 13 at GRACE Main (610 Shady Brook Dr.) from 4:30-5:30 p.m.

VITA FAQ

VITA is a program that helps qualifying families claim all of the tax credits for which they are eligible, giving them a chance to build a more stable financial future.

Last year volunteers helped families discover over $150,000 in Earned Income Credit and over $43,000 in Child Tax Credit. This effort supports GRACE’s mission to restore financial stability for families by helping them accrue a healthy savings account.
