VITA Program
Through the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program, volunteers become certified tax preparers and provide qualifying individuals and families with free, reliable assistance in filing state and federal returns.

Connecting the Dots
This is an annual one-day of service and events for the under employed or unemployed families in our community. The event includes keynote speakers, workshops and vendor booths concerning finding jobs, affordable housing options, childcare, education, and training opportunities. This event is in partnership with the City of Rock Hill and Weed & Seed Urban Rock Hill.

Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive

Holiday Partners
This collaborative Holiday Assistance program provides toys to local children ages birth to 14 years old during the holiday season. This program is in partnership with WRHI's Toys for Happiness and The Herald's Empty Stocking Fund.
