To maximize our effectiveness in our struggle against hunger and poverty, we help low-income people access the government services that they are entitled to. This model of service is particularly efficient, because we help people tap into much larger government services. For example, every dollar it costs to operate our free tax preparation service for low-income workers brings clients an average of $35 in refunds.
Many public policies that can help low-income people are inaccessible because clients lack information, are reluctant to apply for benefits, or are overwhelmed by the bureaucratic complexity of the process. Through education, outreach, and direct service, Just Harvest helps remove these barriers and get clients the help they are entitled to.
