Trained volunteers are available to help in filing your taxes including your homestead property tax and home heating credit. Tax assistance is free of charge. Appointments are available by contacting us.
Medicare/Medicaid Assistance Program (MMAP)
MMAP counselors are specially trained in Medicare/Medicaid rules and other health insurance products to assist seniors in deciding which are the best options for them. MMAP counselors are not connected with any insurance company, nor are they licensed to sell insurance. Their purpose is to serve you objectively and confidentially. Every year between November 15th – December 31st, Medicare beneficiaries should review their prescription drug coverage to determine if it is still the best plan for the next year. Appointments are available with counselors to help you review your coverage. This service is free of charge.

Our staff are ready to assist you in finding answers to your questions or to assist you in finding available resources. Our office is open Monday-Friday 8am-5pm.
Almost all of these services are available to you on a donation basis.

And don't forget to tell your friends, family & neighbors about us too!
