University Neighborhood Housing Program

Income Tax Preparation

UNHP is able to offer free tax preparation to Bronxites thanks to the effort of our tax preparation and intake volunteers. In 2014, 80 high school, college, and graduate students volunteered their time and efforts to help their neighbors get the tax benefits they deserve. Thanks to these volunteers, we were able to serve over 1,400 households and bring over $1.7 million back to the Bronx! Tax returns are one of the largest poverty reduction tools in the United States, and your help ensures that Bronxites keep their money without paying for predatory financial services.

We offer free tax preparation on select Wednesdays and Saturdays in January, February, March, and April at the Refuge House, located at 2715 Bainbridge Avenue at 196th. We ask volunteers to commit to a few days during the tax season, and of course we love it when volunteers can come more often!

Below is more information on what it means to be a Volunteer Income Tax Assistant (VITA) volunteer and how to get involved.

The goal of the New York State Department of Health’s Perinatal Health Information Technology (PHIT) program is to address fragmentation in maternal and child health care by closing the referral loop and ensuring better care transitions for at risk and low income women. This is a NY state funded project that comes out of Medicaid Redesign recommendations to improve care delivery by supporting initiatives demonstrating effective use of HIT technology to link health care systems and community based health organizations. Using a newly designed software platform, communication will be facilitated between medical and social services providers to promote timely referrals, coordinated care, and enhanced screening of risks for women at risk of poor maternal and child outcomes.

Perinatal Service Coordinators (PSCs) will be assigned to one of the partner medical or social services agencies we term Project Users. PSCs will assist in care coordination for clients at risk of poor birth and/or maternal outcomes. PSCs will perform a variety of duties, including: working on-site to help support implementation of a Community Based Service Navigation (CBSN) system, ensuring timeliness of patient referrals, and supporting communication between BPN and Project Users. PSCs will be trained in the utilization of a health information technology (HIT) solution developed to screen and identify risks, refer women for services, and plan care coordination.

Internship Overview:
The Brooklyn PHIT PSC Program is a field experience for academic credit. It is ideal for undergraduate or graduate students in the health and human services fields with knowledge of and/or an interest in health equity, community health, public health, and women’s health to gain hands-on experience in the expanding health delivery and health technology field. This field experience is unpaid.

PSCs are expected to work for at least 8 hours per week (with additional hours as approved). Each PSC is matched with a medical or social service provider and site supervisor. Some of the sites participating in the PHIT Program are:
