Financial $tability PartnershipTM of the River Cities to host Earned Income Credit/Child Tax Credit event
HUNTINGTON, W.Va. — The Financial $tability PartnershipTM of the River Cities, an initiative of United Way of the River Cities, is hosting an event that will showcase its goals and the state of poverty in the region.
The Earned Income Credit/Child Tax Credit Train the Trainer event will be from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 6 at the Cabell County Library Downtown Branch.
The event will feature a poverty simulation conducted by Richard Fleisher, West Virginia University extension specialist. The simulation places participants into family groups that will negotiate through a compacted month-long time period.
“The simulation will open a lot of people’s eyes,” said Ed Davis, Financial $tability PartnershipTM coordinator. “Participants will see how community resource providers influence the fabric of family life in the River Cities. This event will also further the goals and objectives of the Financial $tability PartnershipTM and the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance program.”
This free event is approved for three domestic violence advocate certification CE hours and will also feature guest speakers, breakfast and lunch. The event is open to the public, but registration is required.
