Financial education and access to affordable banking services helps people create a path to long-term financial independence.  

Our Fresh Start Financial Education and Banking Programs are available to current and formerly incarcerated people through partnerships with the reentry community, Departments of Corrections and state agencies:

 

  • Online financial education learning portal available 24/7 using a smartphone, computer or tablet. Credit counseling services also available to participants. 

  • Mobile banking program powered by credit unions that includes a no-cost, no-credit check, no-minimum checking account, debit card, direct deposit, early pay day and access to 30,000 fee-free ATMs.

Justice-involved individuals experience significant challenges in accessing mainstream financial services. Our vision is to start a new credit union for this community, their families, friends and supporters.

Financial Freedom isn't only for the 1%

We are working on starting a new credit union to help end systemic discrimination and provide a financial home for formerly incarcerated people and their families.
