Ceiba Graduates Ira Lubert Matched Savings Participant

Ceiba congratulates Dulce R., one of its first 2018 United Way Ira Lubert Matched Savings Program Graduates.

Ceiba helped Dulce R complete her first tax return in 2014. At that time, Ceiba helped Dulce complete three years of prior year tax returns, in which she was eligible to receive the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC), a credit of up to $6,318 per year. Ceiba has done Dulce’s taxes since 2014. In 2017, Dulce enrolled in Ceiba’s Ira Lubert Matched Savings Program for First Time Homebuyers. As part of the program she completed six hours of financial literacy and five hours of housing counseling with Ceiba. In June of 2018, Dulce purchased her first home in Philadelphia for her family using her tax refunds, savings, and the funds from the matched savings program. Congratulations, Dulce!
