Building Your Financial House - Readiness for Reentry
Ex-offenders reentering society have unique financial challenges and financial education needs. This session will introduce Building Your Financial House's (BYFH) and how it's being used with incarcerated veterans preparing for release. BYFH is a comprehensive financial readiness program that addresses establishing personal value, obtaining pro-social and sustainable employment, controlling income and expenses, building and protecting assets, navigating the financial system and products, and managing debt including restitution and fines. The program has produced positive change in the inmate's financial perspectives and prompted measurable actions to prepare for release.
