Seasonal Assistance Programs

CAPTAIN CHS offers a multitude of seasonal programs, including:

  • Bike Works provides bicycles to residents throughout Saratoga County who are willing to invest some time to learn the basics of bike safety and bike maintenance. With the help of the Stewart’s Corporation, CAPTAIN CHS provides new or lightly-used bicycles to deserving individuals for recreation, transportation, and as a means of promoting a healthy lifestyle. With a focus on education and developing a commitment to biking, CAPTAIN CHS staff and community volunteers teach bike safety, maintenance, and repair to area youth throughout the year.

  • CAPTAIN CHS offers a variety of Holiday and Seasonal Assistance Programs, including School Supplies, Coats for CAPTAIN, Thanksgiving Baskets, Adopt-a-Family and Toy Shop.

  • The Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program is an IRS service that offers free tax help to income-qualified individuals and households, persons with disabilities, and limited English-speaking taxpayers who need assistance in preparing their tax returns. IRS-certified volunteers provide free income tax return preparation with electronic filing to qualified individuals. We serve all counties in the Capital area.
