A brief overview on many of the services and programs available through the Department of Human Services is available here.

If you make less than about $49,000 and have children living at home, the Earned Income Tax Credit and Child Tax Credit can help you keep more of the money you work so hard to earn. If you qualify, you owe less in taxes and may even get hundreds or thousands of dollars back. Plus, there are more tax credits available for saving for retirement and for college. Dial 211 (it's a free call) to learn about these tax credits and to find help filing your taxes, or go to www.piton.org/eitc.
