    Ceiba’s immigrant clients are building financial skills and stability through Ceiba’s asset building programs. Ms. V first filed her taxes with Ceiba using an ITIN. By the following year she had successfully applied for a U-Visa and Social Security card with the help of a free legal services agency. Ceiba then helped her file her taxes under her new Social Security number. Ceiba linked her with the Empowerment Group, who gave her advice about business formation and licensing for her existing house cleaning business and a potential produce business.

    When Carmen first began participating in Ceiba’s programs, she was a tenant in a rental unit owned by the Norris Square Civic Association, one of Ceiba’s member organizations. Over a three-year period, Ceiba helped her to file her income taxes, successfully complete the Ceiba IDA Homeownership program, and receive one-on-one counseling to buy a home developed by the Associacion de Puertorriqueños en Marcha (APM). Today, Carmen is a homeowner with the skills to maintain her family’s financial stability.
