We know we are on the right track because we are seeing some powerful results:
- Through Volunteer Income Tax Assistance, 5,088 low-income individuals received free tax assistance. This effort returned more than $8,252,267 to New Haven area taxpayers and saved tax payers over $1,017,600 in filing fees.
- Together with our workforce development partners, we helped 91 people with significant barriers to employment get permanent jobs.
-- 78% of them increased their household income as a result of their involvement with a United way Program.
-- 57% are in jobs that pay $10 or more an hour.
-- 23% moved about 200% of the Federal Poverty Level (considered a measure of self-sufficiency in Connecticut).
