Campaign for Working Families
The Campaign for Working Families seeks practical ways of improving the economic security of the working poor in Philadelphia, so that hard working families have the opportunity to increase their income, wisely manage their limited finances, protect themselves from dubious and expensive tax preparation and financial services and begin to build assets.
The Campaign provides low-income families with free tax preparation services at community based sites which allow maximum benefits due from the Federal Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC), PA TAX BACK and other credits and refunds. The Campaign offers advice about non-predatory, quality financial services and offers access to Individual Development Accounts, savings plans, credit repair, and information about public benefits such as Food Stamps and child care subsidy. We provide free advice and financial assistance, to assist families in closing the gap between their income and their expenses, and develop assets.
