Helping Working Families Thrive

Since 2002, CCAV volunteers have prepared more than 40,000 income tax returns for income-eligible families resulting in refunds totaling more than $45 million. Assuming each family would have paid $150 in preparation, e-filing and/or “rapid refund” loan fees, we estimate we’ve saved families an additional $5.5 million. During the most recent tax season, CCAV assisted 2,700 families of limited wealth working in Lubbock and surrounding communities.


Income Taxes Prepared




Refunds For Families

Our Mission

The Coalition of Community Assistance Volunteers, Inc. (CCAV) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that was created in 2002 to help low-income working families throughout the South Plains become more financially self-sufficient. To accomplish this goal, CCAV takes a multi-faceted approach, which includes:


CCAV provides FREE income tax preparation and e-filing services through its Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program. Volunteers are trained by CCAV and the IRS in order to prepare income tax returns according to IRS guidelines. This enables income-eligible persons to receive every penny of the refunds to which they are legally entitled.


CCAV partners with other local non-profit organizations to provide financial literacy workshops which educate tax refund recipients about investing – rather than simply spending – their money in ways that will help them become more financially self-sufficient.


CCAV partners with the Low Income Tax Clinic conducted by Texas Tech University’s School of Law. The Tax Clinic assists income eligible persons with dependency issues, earned income credit controversies, identity theft issues, etc.
