Building Bridges Between People Who Need Help !


Every year, approximately 640,000 people are released from prison and nine million from jail.  The resulting 70 to 100 million people with criminal records face unique financial challenges. Such challenges include significant criminal debt that prevents people with criminal records from getting their driver’s license, barriers to accessing credit reports in prison, and errors in their criminal background checks.  Learn about these challenges and how you can use HPP CARES resources like our Focus on Re-entry Guide to help individuals in prison or in the community achieve their financial goals in transition.
