If you have not yet heard of the work being done by the group Embraced:Fully then it is time to check them out! They have a wonderful Interview coming up this Thursday via zoom at 8:00PM Houston time titled, Exploring Financial Literacy:
Julie Rugg is a retired math instructor. Don Rugg is a Certified Financial Planner™ and a retired CPA. Since 2013, they have volunteered with Financial Beginnings, a nonprofit that provides free personal finance education to youth and adults. Between the two of them, they have given hundreds of presentations on topics like Budgeting, Banking, Credit, Investing, Insurance, Careers, and Financing College. In 2018, they began doing presentations for the AICs at Deer Ridge Correctional Institution in Madras, Oregon. These classes became their favorite and they are looking forward to continuing these presentations as well as their new work as Assistant Volunteer Chaplains for CSCIS.

We envision a world where returning community members are actively supported by Angel Teams to help ensure key needs are met in order to succeed in not going back to prison or jail.
Our mission is to organize, train, educate, and enable Angel Teams across the United States to help qualified returning community members successfully reenter society.
Embraced:Fully was founded in 2020 to address the gap that exists between exiting prison and successfully reintegrating with society. Religious institutional work in many cases has traditionally not extended beyond prison walls. Embraced:Fully is the hand-off organization to assist with practical needs and resources for returning community members.
This Thursday at 8:00PM Houston time is an interview
