AUGUST ENGAGEMENT: ACHIEVING FINANCIAL STABILITY

As the 2024 ALICE (Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed) Report exposes, more people here find themselves living paycheck to paycheck and working hard to keep their heads over water. A family of four with an infant and a preschooler needs to annually make $88,000 to live comfortably. We recognize the best way to help involves marshaling our resources and uniting the community behind a collective effort, and we invite you to join us through the below opportunities.

 

VOLUNTEER

  • At the Campbell Park Resource Center, located on the campus of John Hopkins Middle School, volunteers can support in a variety of ways:
    • Home Plate Market: volunteers assist with various tasks while the pantry is open such as sanitizing, stocking shelves, assisting individuals/families, and other duties as needed. View available shifts.
    • Campbell Park Network for Early Learning: volunteers assist the Learn & Play Sessions that are designed to support parents/caregivers to play and interact with children in developmentally appropriate ways to encourage brain development and assist school readiness. View more about this program.
  • Year Round VITA volunteers are needed at select locations in our 5 county footprint. VITA is an IRS program that utilizes certified volunteers to help provide free and accurate tax preparation services to low- to moderate-income taxpayers. Learn how you can become a certified VITA volunteer and to view our upcoming VITA volunteer shifts on our VITA volunteer page.
