Financial Literacy and Economic Success




Economic stability is a critical element for the well-being of families. We provide income tax assistance, adult education (Plaza Comunitaria), financial education and more.

Free tax preparation assistance

We provide households with free tax preparation assistance, through trained volunteers. This program, known as VITA (Volunteer Income Tax Assistance), is provided at our family centers between January – April each year.  This year our tax assistance program reached 688 households generating $691,528 in refunds, averaging $1,005/family.
