Mission Statement

We are a Brooklyn-based non-profit organization whose mission is to enable members of the community to preserve and grow their assets, thereby securing their economic future. We are an affiliate of Brooklyn Coop Federal Credit Union, a community financial institution whose mission is to build wealth, resilience, and opportunity through just and affordable financial services.


We serve the Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brownsville, Bushwick, Crown Heights, East New York, Williamsburg and other working class neighborhoods in Kings and Queens Counties in New York City with a narrow, yet heavily demanded, set of services. These services are available in English or Spanish and are free or low-cost. Our key programs include:
1. VITA program - providing thousands of Brooklyn residents each year with free tax preparation services, securing millions of dollars in tax benefits.
2. Foreclosure prevention - counseling and representing homeowners towards the resolution of troubled home loans. Our counselors and attorneys have served about a thousand clients, resulting in the saving of hundreds of homes.
3. End of life planning ("Protect Your Treasure") - assisting residents with the documentation they need to ensure their assets are passed seamlessly and with little cost to their heirs.
