If you’ve spent part of your life—or most of your life—struggling to get by in the world, the idea of actually getting ahead might seem out of reach. But even if your story has been filled with barriers, vanishing opportunities, and setbacks, the next chapter can change all that. Yes, you have to write it, but you don’t have to do it alone.

In a facilitated group setting, Getting Ahead in a Just-Gettin’-By World takes you step by step through a discovery of yourself like no other. It’s not just about how you got where you are now. It’s also about what comes next to build the life you want. 

You will investigate:

– The realities of conditions in your community and how they impact you
– Some of the “hidden rules” for getting ahead
– Skills that give you confidence to do what it takes to get ahead
– How to build resources and make connections at home and at work
– Ways to deal with change and create stability in your life

Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program

This program  is a community collaborative effort between DC Connect, Inc., the IRS, and other community organizations to provide free federal and state income tax return preparation and electronic filing for low-income households.

We help file taxes for free for individuals with an adjusted gross income less than $55,000. Our appointments and locations will be released in late January 2024.

We are always looking for volunteers!

The Seniors’ Health Insurance Information Program (SHIIP) counsels Medicare beneficiaries and caregivers about Medicare, Medicare supplements, Medicare Advantage, Medicare Part D, and long-term care insurance. The counselors on our toll-free line offer free and unbiased information regarding Medicare health care products. We also help people recognize and prevent Medicare billing errors and possible fraud and abuse through the NC Senior Medicare Patrol Program.

SHIIP counselors are not licensed insurance agents, and they do not sell or endorse any product, plan, or company.  If you have questions about your specific plan, we encourage you to contact your insurance agent or the insurance company.
