Volunteer Income
Tax Assistance Program

The Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) Program helps low and moderate income families file their taxes and claim tax credits. These tax credits, such as the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) and the Child Tax Credit, are considered the most effective ways to help families move out of poverty. You can be a part of this important anti-poverty work! As one of the largest VITA sites in the Boston area, The Neighborhood Developers provides free tax preparation to over 1000 clients each tax season. In 2016, we garnered over $2.2 million in refunds for our clients! We offer tax services at two locations in Chelsea and Revere, and are open 4 days a week from January to April. The site coordinator plays a vital role for TND’s VITA program. She/he will work with the VITA program manager to facilitate operations and coordinate client services during the busy tax season. We are looking for someone who is committed to providing high quality services to the community, learns quickly, can work in a fast paced environment, and can work independently.

CONNECT Intake & Public Benefits Internship

Based at the CONNECT office in Chelsea, the Intake & Public Benefits intern will work one-on-one to help families apply for SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, formerly called food stamps), MassHealth, and WIC benefits. These public benefits  have proven antipoverty impacts for low income families and provide an important safety net. Each of these public benefits provides clients with a significant increase to their monthly income, but many of CONNECT’s clients are missing out on accessing these benefits due to systemic barriers in the application process, stigma associated with participation in government programs, or lack of awareness of eligibility. The Public Benefits intern will help eliminate barriers to financial stability among CONNECT’s low-income constituency through providing application assistance and case management support throughout the entire application process.  The intern will help families to submit applications for benefits, collect required documentation, and navigate the complicated application process. Additional responsibilities include participating in bi-weekly core services staff meetings, providing an orientation of other services to clients, completing intake forms, calling the DTA and MassHealth customer assistance lines to help resolve client cases, and creating referrals to other services. Other tasks and activities may be added, based on the intern’s interests and organizational need.
