MAKING A DIFFERENCE: VITA Helps Family Buy First House
One Holyoke family is grateful to the
Valley Opportunity Council (VOC)
VITA site this year. With the help of the IRS certified tax preparation volunteer (and VOC Director of Programs) Melissa, they are able to make the down payment on their first house. This family with 2 young children and 2 working parents who have been saving for some time left smiling. This year, between their refund and the money they saved on the tax prep, they now have enough to finally make that purchase.
