ABOUT US

THE VITA PROGRAM

Since 2006, the Coalition for Family Economic Progress works toward a singular purpose: to economically empower the hardworking families of the El Paso area by helping them receive their entire tax refund free of charge. Through the VITA program, our private and public partners allow us to provide assistance with electronic tax preparations.

Our tax-preparation sites are spread across the greater El Paso area, allowing us to serve the communities of Far West Texas and Southern New Mexico. Through this program, we are able to assist thousands of local families in making effective use of Earned Income Tax Credit and Child Tax Credit. Combined with our proven education and outreach efforts, we are able to help families use their tax refunds to build assets that strengthen communities and promote prosperity.

MISSION STATEMENT

A coalition providing free tax preparation and awareness to qualifying families to increase economic independence and improve the quality of life in the Paso del Norte Region.
