Mentally. Emotionally. Financially.
That family member may have been the sole provider. On top of that, there are high costs with supporting an incarcerated loved one. These expenses can take away from the important needs of school-aged family members. Having a parent in the prison system often thins family finances and puts added strain on mothers. Even getting arrested can cause family members to lose wages or jobs. Plus, any stain on someone’s record makes it much harder to gain employment.
What can families do to mitigate these pervasive issues?
The Michael’s Daughter Foundation believes that knowledge is power.
One way of breaking the cycle of incarceration is through financial education.
This is why Michael’s Daughter is teaming up with Chase Bank Crenshaw Community Center this Financial Literacy Month.
Who Will Be There?
Chase Bank’s Jordan King will lead a financial literacy course designed to help you learn about ways to develop healthy financial habits. Attendees will meet and greet Ciera Payton (from Tyler Perry’s The Oval and the Lifetime Wendy Williams Movie!) along with Michael’s Daughter Foundation board members.
We hope to see you there!

P.S. How can we create wealth for future generations?
According to Forbes, financial education is the number one tool. Leave a different legacy. One dime, one dollar, one decision at a time.
