Hold onto your hats—TAPS is moving! After 10 years at our current location, we move into our new home, just one block away, at the end of October.
Moving is never easy, and when the owners of our current building told us they had sold it to developers looking to create an assisted living facility, we worried we might not be able to find another place downtown we could afford.
Luckily, our friends at the Society of St. Vincent De Paul, who are just about to celebrate 100 years in our community, had office space coming open in their building at 828 View Street, just around the corner from TAPS. We worked out an arrangement with them, and that’s where we’re going. You may be familiar with this address: it’s where St. Vincent’s was running their Social Concern Office until recently.
Our new building will be a step up in many respects. TAPS has grown a lot in the last ten years, and we’ve been in desperate need of more space. The office at 828 View Street has more room for staff and volunteers, as well as a large area where we can hold community events. And as a ground level storefront office, we can say: goodbye unreliable elevator!
We look forward to welcoming our clients and supporters to the new office once we are settled. And we’ll be doing our best to ensure a smooth transition, with as little disruption as possible for our clients.
Please note that TAPS will be closed on October 25th and 26th, and there will be no tax clinic on October 25th. Look for us to re-open at our new location in the first week of November.
