“As the volunteer director of the Prosperity Partners Financial Freedom Money Management Program, I have teamed up with Guidewell Financial Solutions and the Maryland Correctional Enterprises (MCE) CARES Program for financial literacy training in several Maryland correctional facilities. For several years, Guidewell Financial has helped provide credit guidance to Maryland inmates as part of the re-entry program.

Many people might not believe it but even folks behind bars are concerned about their finances. They want to establish good credit. They want to address outstanding debt. They most certainly need help in budgeting. The services Guidewell Financial has provided to help offenders prepare for release and become good money managers has been invaluable.”
