Our poverty alleviation activities include the USDA Summer Food Service Program (in collaboration with the Hunger Council of the Windham Region), our Kids in Coats Fund, which provides winter outerwear to income-eligible families, our two free tax assistance services, the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) Program and, and our United@Work initiative, which works to increase the financial stability of local employees through workplace-based supports and services.
