The Partnership for the Homeless

Kudos for Our Tax Preparation Assistance

The Partnership has been honored by the Internal Revenue Service for “outstanding public service” to the Brooklyn community for providing free tax-preparation assistance to families in need. Since 2007, the Partnership has hosted the IRS’s Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program. In that time, we have helped thousands of families recover millions of dollars from the government, including qualifying for the Earned Income Tax Credit. More importantly, the program helps us provide a point of entry for our financial coaches to train families about how to leverage their refund to enhance their financial security and make informed financial decisions down the road. Every dollar saved strengthens household stability and reduces the number of families at risk of homelessness.
