Every year, the Campaign for Working Families, Inc. recruits, trains, and manages hundreds of volunteers who staff 30+ free tax sites across Philadelphia and surrounding counties, including South Jersey. In 2016, CWF’s Philadelphia and South Jersey tax sites provided over 30,000 working families with access to important tax credits like the Earned Income Tax Credit through free tax preparation, resource building and asset development. Each year, CWF brings millions of dollars in tax credits back to the Philadelphia area.
