Too many offenders leave prison with little, if any, understanding of money management. This only makes it even more difficult for them to re-enter society with a solid foundation.
Correctional institutions are beginning to combat this issue by offering Financial Peace University to offenders while they are in prison. As they learn the fundamentals of a healthy financial lifestyle, they become more equipped to manage their money when they leave the correctional facility—and less likely to return.
Paul Compton, Deputy Warden of Lake Erie Correctional, says, “I’m watching this program change the mindset of men here and preparing them for re-entry into society.”
Find out how Financial Peace University can make an impact in your correctional facility.
Taught by personal finance expert Dave Ramsey, Financial Peace University is a 13-week program that provides offenders with the tools and skills they need to manage their money for long-term success. This program, which is one of the most sought-after courses in many institutions, prepares offenders for life back home. One U.S. correctional facility keeps a list of more than 300 offenders anxiously waiting to begin the class! FPU is a turn-key solution that requires no staff training.
