CA$H Coalition of the Greater Capital Region

United Way has been a lead partner and fiduciary in the CA$H Coalition of the Greater Capital Region since 2007. CA$H, which stands for Creating Assets, Savings and Hope, brings together human service organizations, financial institutions, the IRS, volunteers and others to tackle the issue of poverty and its impact on local families by providing free tax return preparation services through the IRS Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program.
