Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Partnership Volunteers & "Food Stamp" Outreach & Resource Navigators


Volunteer Opportunity Details:

Last updated on December 17, 2013

Community Action VITA Partnership is a program of the Montgomery County Department of Health and Human Services, and brings together resources from the IRS, the City of Rockville, the City of Gaithersburg and its "Bank On" initiative, the University of Maryland Coop Ext., Family Services, Inc., the Maryland CASH Campaign, Maryland Hunger Solutions, local nonprofits and volunteers to help assure high quality, free tax services for families earning under $52,000 a year.

Want to link VITA families with food and other resources? Can you volunteer between January and April 2014?

Last year, volunteers participated in Maryland Hunger Solutions and Montgomery County's Community Action Agency's Voluntary Income Tax Assistance (VITA) partnership, serving 2,359 low-to-moderate income households, and returning over $4.6 million to families through EITC (Earned Income Tax Credits), Child Tax Credits and state and federal refunds.

"Food Stamp" Outreach & Resource Navigators are responsible for screening and assisting customers interested in Food Stamps and other resources. Navigators will help customers complete an online application using Maryland SAIL, and refer customers to other needed resources.

MAVIGATORS ARE NEEDED AT OUR 4 PARTNERSHIPS:

--MidCounty Regional Services Center in Wheaton
--Takoma East Silver Spring Center (TESS)
--City of Rockville, and
--at Family Services, Inc. in Gaithersburg

Navigators are needed primarily during the later afternoons and evenings, with some daytime and Saturday hours.

All VITA volunteers must complete the IRS "Standard of Conduct" training and pass a simple test.

Our partner Maryland Hunger Solutions is providing training for Food Stamp Outreach & Resource Navigators. To learn more, contact Sarah at Sniskanen@mdhungersolutions.org or call 410-528-0021 x24
