Each year a dedicated group of volunteers spend countless hours ensuring the success of Community Action’s Volunteer Income Tax Program. Their efforts in identifying eligible tax credits and maximum refunds help to increase the financial capacity of families which, in turn, stimulates the local economy.

It is the 3rd year for the Early Childhood Professionals discount cards. We have had a great response from providers, and they appreciate the recognition and incentives offered by their fellow small business colleagues. This is a wonderful example of local people helping each other on a business to business level.

Community Action’s Jefferson-Lewis Childcare Project (JLCP) would like to extend an invitation to any interested local businesses to join us in support of our community’s Early Childhood Professionals. Advertising exposure for your business is a bonus in participating. Check out the information below.
