Building a savings is essential to building a solid future for your family. Our financial literacy programs help you to save money through a Family Savings Account.
WCA needs you! We are looking for 15-20 families in Jeannette and Monessen to take part in the Circles Program as a Circle Leader.
While the US is the richest country on earth, 1 in 10 children in Westmoreland County lives in poverty. We need to change that.
Circles is a strategy that seeks to change the mind-set of a community so that it wants to end poverty by changing goals, policies and approaches to work more effectively.
Westmoreland Community Action wants to empower people who deal with poverty in their lives every day to help us solve community problems while transitioning themselves out of poverty.
We're looking for Circle Leaders in Monessen and Jeannette - families who want to improve their situation and help others to understand the issues.

Free Low Income Tax Service
Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program
The VITA Program offers free tax help to low- to moderate-income (generally, $49,000 and below) people who cannot prepare their own tax returns. Certified volunteers sponsored by various organizations receive training to help prepare basic tax returns in communities across the county.
Trained community volunteers may help with special credits, such as Earned Income Tax Credit, Child Tax Credit, and Credit for the Elderly or the Disabled. In addition to free tax return preparation assistance, our sites also offer free electronic filing (e-filing). Individuals taking advantage of the e-file program will receive their refunds in half the time compared to returns filed on paper even faster when tax refunds are deposited directly into one's bank account.
Items to bring to the VITA site to have your tax return prepared
Sites are located in Greensburg, New Kensington and Monessen.
