StreetCred seeks to be a national, self-sustaining, social impact organization providing tax preparation in hospitals and clinics, targeting families eligible for the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) and Child Tax Credit (CTC). Through this service, StreetCred aims to: (1) Alleviate poverty while synergistically improving health care delivery. (2) Improve child health outcomes via increased financial stability, increased participation in pediatric care, and reduction of traumatic stress.
StreetCred will provide free tax preparation services in conjunction with health care visits to families using the Boston Medical Center (BMC) for pediatric care during the 2015-2016 pilot year. Working in partnership with the Boston Tax Help Coalition, we are looking to recruit and train volunteer tax preparers. We plan to expand services to other hospitals, clinics, and community sites across the country in upcoming tax seasons.
