The Ohio Credit Union Foundation has issued a Financial Education Grant to Day Air Credit Union for $3473 to assist with providing adult financial education to ex-offenders, via the Montgomery County Office of Ex-Offender Reentry program for fall 2015.
Jamie Gee, Manager of The Montgomery County Office of Ex-Offender Reentry expressed her appreciation. “Our office serves the citizens of Montgomery County with programs that minimize barriers to effective reentry and promote reduction in recidivism. Our motto of ‘Action, Alliance, and Accountability,’ is supported by community partners like Day Air Credit Union.”
The 2015 Reentry Career Alliance Academy is a three week intense learning experience presented by community members and staff of the Office of Ex-Offender Reentry.
