About

Would you like to use your tax experience to make a meaningful difference in the lives of Oregon's low-income Latino families?

By volunteering just five hours a week during tax season as a trained Quality Reviewer you can provide a vital service and in turn an important step towards economic security to those most in need. You will also gain a meaningful new experience and become a part of a team of like-minded people.

El Programa Hispano Católico is a non-profit organization providing quality, culturally-specific social services to low-income Latinos in the Portland metropolitan area. Through considerable volunteer support and dedication and in partnership with the IRS El Programa Hispano Católico provides certified basic tax preparation to the low-income Latino community free of charge, last season helping over 1,000 taxpayers in need secure over $2 million in refunds. This season we aim to grow our volunteer team in order to meet the increasing demand for this invaluable service and we need your help!

Quality Reviewers are essential to the success of our program, ensuring high-quality, accurate preparation and service. Spanish is helpful but is not required. Continuing Education (CE) credit is available. Orientations are happening throughout November and December, trainings in December and January. Service begins January 24th and ends April 17th. Please contact our Site Coordinator Karen Keating at kkeating@elprograma.org or (503) 489-6834 with any interest or questions you have. We look forward to hearing from you!
