NFCC is the only VITA program location in North Fulton. “We are so happy bring the VITA program to North Fulton again this year,” says Eden Purdy, director of programs at NFCC. “This community outreach effort helps working individuals and families simplify the tax filing process and makes it easy for them to file.”
