Together Against Poverty society

OFFICE CLOSURE: October 19, 2020

Please note that TAPS will be closed on Monday, October 19, 2020 for strategic planning. Every three years the TAPS Board of Directors and Staff get together to set the direction and priorities of the organization, and this year we will be creating our strategic plan for the next three years, 2020 - 2023. 

We will be open again on Tuesday, October 20th, at 9:00 am. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, and we look forward to sharing our updated strategic plan when it is completed.
