Pennsylvania Housing Finance Agency | Building Your Financial House  –  Readine$$ for Reentry

To address the need of incarcerated veterans to improve their financial readiness for reentry and reduce the likelihood of recidivism, PHFA adapted the in-house financial education program, Building Your Financial House (BYFH), for delivery in the state correctional institutions. Participants reported tangible financial actions, improvement of money attitudes, and lower re-arrests. Inmate veterans with long-term sentences have been trained and are replicating BYFH as part of reentry services.
