EMERGE COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT

EMERGE Free Tax Clinic helps people get the refunds they deserve!

At EMERGE, economic empowerment is central to our work in the community. Whether that means giving someone the confidence they need to ace their upcoming interview, helping them fill out a job application or empowering them with tools to improve their credit score; we aim to build a better community by helping families gain stability. 

Trevon was assisted by the Free Tax Clinic in 2015.  He heard about it through word of mouth and thought it would be a great resource for him. Trevon had done his own taxes before, but had made errors that eventually cost him. He said, "working with trained staff really helped me be confident that my taxes were completed without mistakes. I was greeted by friendly staff, walked through the process and they even took the time to answer my questions and help me learn more about my tax refund."  He got the refund he deserved and was able to pay off his overdue child support.  Once his child support was up to date, his driver's license was reinstated and a world of opportunities opened up for him.  Trevon continued, "I am now able to work full time and support my family.  Having my license allows me to take better care of my children."

Your gift will help others like Trevon regain hope and confidence. This year, your gift will go to our Free Tax Clinic so our participants will have support to better understand the tax reporting process and in turn, receive the tax refunds they deserve. 

Please give to our Free Tax Clinic to help others like Trevon achieve success.
