On January 26th, to mark National Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) Day, Rep. Becca Balint was joined by state and local representatives and advocacy groups at Capstone Community Action to raise awareness of the tax credits available to Vermonters.
Capstone Head Start is enrolling children and families
Head Start at Capstone Community Action has multiple openings in Lamoille, Washington, and Orange counties, which provides services for families with young children and pregnant individuals. We also help support you in your next steps in life, the caregiver of the child or pregnant individual, with connections to social, health, housing, food services, and much more.
Our VITA (Volunteer Income Tax Assistance) program supports low to moderate income Vermonters by preparing taxes and accessing refunds credits due to them. Call today to schedule your appointment.

Support Neighbors Navigating Challenging Times
Capstone financial coach, Mary Johnson (left), recently supported Diana* through a complex point in her life. A single mom of two teenagers, without a car, and living in a motel due to a recent eviction, Diana was simultaneously fired from her job and diagnosed with cancer. Mary helped her enroll in Reach Up and improve her financial skills, and worked with Diana for a year in individual meetings and classes.
Fast forward to today, Diana has a new job, is paying down debt and starting to improve her credit score. Most importantly, she is excited to restart her life with greater stability and independence! *Note: Name has been changed to protect privacy.
Together, we can make these stories of a community that cares a reality. Your donation empowers our neighbors to build security in the face of adversity.
