Mother and Daughter Hugging
Building wealth and improving health for children and families


The Problem

Too many families lack the time and knowledge they need to access evidence-based programs, such as the Earned Income Tax Credit, which has been shown to reduce poverty and improve children’s life trajectories.

One in five eligible families do not claim the EITC.

The Solution

We believe healthcare should help families access the resources they need to get and stay financially healthy. With your help, we have returned over $7.3 million to more than 3,700 low-income families.


“Can you help me with my taxes?”

A mother’s question–and her subsequent difficulty getting help–motivated doctors to start StreetCred, a free tax preparation service for low-income families. In its pilot season, StreetCred put over $400,000 in the pockets of 186 low-income, hardworking families.

With your help, we’ve returned over $7.3 million to more than 3,700 families who need it most!
